It is not, as script variants are defined in ISO 15924.

I have, however, done my best point you to the 
solution, which is the same one you use for 
distinctions in German spelling. You have 1901 
and 1996 spelling, and you have country variants 
for where there are differences like 
Januar/Jänner heißen/heissen. Language tagging.
