ID for language-invariant strings

Decidedly bad for my application. For one thing, I'm not implementing something for Microsoft-internal usage. I'm working on a revision to the OpenType specification, which is an industry-wide specification, and which revisions will also be incorporated into ISO/IEC 14496-22.
Also, there is no need for the private-use subtags here: there's no need to know that a given string was derived from this or that language. If I'm going to use "zxx", then that's all I would use.

Hi, would it be possible to use a private use tag with [zxx], thus to tag these strings, for example:
The stuff after the [x] would be Microsoft internal, though in this example they are the standard names for the languages?
Or is that not acceptable?
Or else not what Peter wants??
