Hi, how about focussing on this part as indicated by your
evidence ? It's already interesting to discuss why you
pick these three region prefixes out of dozens plausible
combinations, notably en-AU, en-CA, en-NZ, and en.
Adding more languages later is possible, but first I want
to see why polluting the registry with monstrous regional
prefix lists is necessary.

Is that so ? What's the difference between say en-GB-signed
and en-IE-signed ? I'd prefer to skip the regions and just
say Prefix: en if that's good enough.
The 3066bis example says that sl-IT-nedis is okay for the
registered Prefix: sl
