No, this is the last one until ISO 639-3 is incorporated, as
far as grandfathered tags go.

The threshold for approval of variants is, and ought to be,
lower than the threshold of approval for new languages (or
countries or scripts, but we don't do those here).

> Has anyone ever used en-boont?

I don't know.  There is content written in it available
on the Internet.
