I thought the use of the generic "zh" tag instead of "cmn" to indicate variants that only apply to Mandarin was a substantive objection. I also think that you deserve some sort of resolution of this issue.

Subject: wadegile and pinyin LANGUAGE SUBTAG REGISTRATION FORMs
I have been waiting on two Language Subtag Registration Forms since Aug 2. I don't think there are an substantive objections, and we have the legitimate need to distinguish between the Hanyu Pinyin and the Wade-Giles romanizations of Chinese.
The message subjects are:
1. LANGUAGE SUBTAG REGISTRATION FORM (R2): wadegile
2. LANGUAGE SUBTAG REGISTRATION FORM (R2): pinyin
PS. According to BCP 47 procedures:
When the two-week period has passed, the Language Subtag Reviewer
either forwards the record to be inserted or modified to
iana at iana.org<mailto:iana at iana.org> according to the procedure described in Section 3.3, or
rejects the request because of significant objections raised on the
list or due to problems with constraints in this document (which MUST
be explicitly cited). The Language Subtag Reviewer MAY also extend
the review period in two-week increments to permit further
discussion. The Language Subtag Reviewer MUST indicate on the list
whether the registration has been accepted, rejected, or extended
following each two-week period.
