Sorry, I meant "zh-cmn".

It doesn't exist today, but it doesn't have the same problem as "gsw":
"zh-cmn" *could* be registered today. It would likely result in a bit of
discussion related to its superceding "zh-guoyu", but I think there's a
good case for it.

There currently are not. It is expected that a successor to 3066
eventually will provide this, but in the mean time, you would need to
request registration of a tag. For this particular case, I'd recommend
requesting two tags: "zh-cmn" and "zh-cmn-Hant".
