I consider these responses sufficient for addressing my questions about 
registering the seven subtags.  Questions about moderation, delegation, 
and conformance to "3066 or its successors" or "BCP 47" are important in 
their own right, but not for this discussion.  (Thank you, Scott.)

I think I've adequately shown the remaining workload on the Reviewer to 
be minimal, and the procedure to be straightforward.  The Reviewer is 
now available (though I'm sure not idle), and has stated that there are 
no other reasons for the delay.

I am formally requesting that these seven registrations be submitted to 
IANA with no further delay.  I will submit them myself per Sections 3.3 
and 3.5 if this has not taken place by Tuesday, March 21.
