Proposal for a new variant subtag of the french language (fr)

Hi all:I think if there are people using this spelling, and there are pages online using it, then this registration request does meet requirements;
both artificial or invented languages and natural languages are languages;
I see nothing saying that we register natural languages only.
If some members object, I hope their objections will be reasonable so that this process does not get to be arbitrary.
