I suppose if someone was going to tag the English language dialect
of the Isle of Man:
then the new codes mean that it would be tagged as en-IM, rather
than registering a new variant code for it as for en-scouse.
And similarly, Jèrriaises:
which the Ethnologue classifies as a dialect of French and not a
separate language, would be fr-JE.
The comment might just help someone to realise that, if they
chanced to look in the right place.
