In the current RFC 3066 regime, I quite understand Michael's reluctance
to register longer codes that aren't provably distinguishable from
shorter codes.  So unless iu is used with more than one script in more
than one country, I don't see the justification for iu-Cans-CA.  In our
hoped-for RFC 3066bis regime, things will of course be otherwise.
