I agree, personally, but I think that's irrelevant.

By all means propose them, then. But to register something is not to
support it: consider the situation of 3166/MA, which registers entities
that aren't countries by any other standard. This "orthografy" has
some number of documents actually available on the Web written in it,
and deserves a variant subtag just as much as Boontling or Scouse.
