It's required to be 5..8 ASCII letters or digits (or 4 if it
starts with a digit). One transliteration (I hope that's the
correct term, please correct me) of the Armenian word for
"western" has 10 characters including an apostrophe. The
word for "west" would fit. I forgot the details for "eastern".
IMHO these two variant subtags should be consistent.
