Notwithstanding the confusion over whether Taraskievica is a Latin or
Cyrillic orthography, Addison makes an important point here.
Suppress-Script is intended to maintain compatibility with RFC 3066
applications that would fail to match, say, "be-Cyrl-BY" with "be-BY".
No RFC 3066 implementation is going to understand the subtag 'tarask'
anyway, in any position, because it is not part of any registered tag.
