Never thought that THIS list is authoritative on nothing else than its own 

This is what I concede leaving you the choice of the default value. So, 
"fr-Latn-US-ietf_language_style-ietf_language at" is something 
you say you want to default to fr-Latn-US (if I read through the off topic 
responses). If it pleases you so much to be the lingustic center of the 
world, there is no problem with that. But your delivery (the attached 
content) will have to be very appealing if you want it to be widely used.

is something you need the OK of Peter to register. If he wants to give you 
authority on him. But frankly why would he want to register it with you ?

HA's Troll
