It's kind of hard to use a subtag before it exists, and asking
for some evidence in the form of pages trying say de-x-erzgeb
would be also strange - we didn't do that for the dialects of
a Slovenian dialect. Or for en-boont.
FWIW there are 631 Google hits for "erzgebirgisch site:de",
some of them apparently talking about or using the dialect.

If folks write books about the dialect, what's the problem ?
Again FWIW, <http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erzgebirgisch> is
a "featured article", mentioning 500,000 speakers.
