While this is a very well-written and well-researched proposal, I do
have one minor nit to pick and one greater concern.
> Suppress-Script: Latin
Variants don't have Suppress-Script values, so this line will be
deleted. If this subtag is approved, the tag "de-erzgeb" would take its
Suppress-Script value from the language subtag "de".

It looks at though this sort of thing will be an increasing source of
variant subtag requests. Readers will recall that "ortograf" was
requested to pave the way for a software translation project, not to tag
actual linguistic content. Does this request have a similar motivation,
or does this properly fall within the domain of language tagging?
