I said "zxx for code is barbaric" based on its description "no linguistic
content".  While I agree that this is an "individual perception" and not
covered by BCP 47 I also propose that we need a short comment in the
"zxx" record stating that this tag can be used for code.  The description
"no linguistic content" is misleading in the case of code.
