That should have been "need", not "Need".

Subject: RE: I approve the registration of es-419 (Latin American
Does the penultimate sentence:
On the other hand, it is not valid to assume that a
request for "es-americas" can be serviced by returning
content labelled as es-AR, or es-BO, es-CL, etc.
Need to be changed to use "es-419"?

Any other relevant information :
It is a common business practice to localize content into a neutral
version of Latin American Spanish to serve all or most
Spanish-speaking regions in Latin America. This code is intended to
identify this neutral variant of Latin American Spanish and
distinguish it from Castilian found in Europe.
This tag is intended for use on content that has been tailored for
Spanish audiences throughout Latin America. It is not a collection
for all Latin American Spanish varieties; it merely indicates that
the author made choices in vocabulary, grammar, spelling, etc. that
would make the content reasonably acceptable to speakers of most or
all Latin American Spanish varieties. (This tag does not imply any
further details regarding what those choices may have been, however.)
This tag is intended primarily for cataloguing of localized content
and resources, rather than for specifying language preference on
retrieval. Ideally, a system should be able to deliver content
labelled with this tag in response to requests for any specific Latin
American Spanish variety, including but not limited to the following:
es-AR, es-BO, es-CL, es-CO, es-CR, es-CU, es-DO, es-EC, es-FK, es-GT,
es-HN, es-MX, es-NI, es-PA, es-PE, es-PR, es-PY, es-SV, es-UY, es-VE.
Of course, systems can also be implemented to offer this tag as a
user-preference option, and a server should deliver content labelled
with this tag when requested for the same. On the other hand, it is
not valid to assume that a request for "es-americas" can be serviced
by returning content labelled as es-AR, or es-BO, es-CL, etc.
It would be appropriate to deliver content labelled with this tag in
response to the more generic request, "es" (cf. section 2.5 of RFC
