Request for variant subtag "scouse"

It's beneficial because the grandfathered tag "en-scouse" can then 
become redundant. Users can then compose the tag "naturally" using 
subtags and implementers won't need to handle the tag as a special case 
any more.

Ideally, only tags that could never be legal under RFC 3066bis would 
remain grandfathered and hopefully all of these items are or will be 

 > It's like the two tags for Yiddish.

There are not "two" Yiddish tags, please note. Only "yi-Latn" was ever 
in the old registry---and it's redundant ('yi' and 'Latn' both being 
valid subtags).
