Well, nobody can stop you from using that; it's syntactically valid and
semantically, well, not incorrect.

But personally I have been advising people to break the rules and use the
639-3 code, which is "mfe".  If we can ever escape the endless-refinement
loop in LTRU, that *will* be the highest quality valid language tag.
