I am inclined to think that "16th-century" is not a very good subtag.
What do we do when we have a language form that spans two centuries?
Shall we register twenty of these for the Common Era, and ten or so
for Before the Common Era? What about writing systems or languages
that span millennia?
What would the meaning be for addig 16th-century to the language tag
for Old English or Esperanto?
