Ick. Dead-on-arrival variants are a Bad Idea. If the subtag is
unnecessary, don't register it. If there is a real world valid use for

If we have to do something, I would favor putting either a Comment or
additional Description on the 'gsw' subtag indicating that it includes
Alsatian. Otherwise, I don't sense that there is a crying need for this
subtag. Nor do we need to anoint particular subtag combinations with
additional imbued meaning.
