I agree.  Unfortunately, that means the request must wait for formal
approval until after the next revision of BCP 47, as we do not yet
actually support ISO 639-3 code elements as language subtags.
Informally, though, there's no reason why you shouldn't start using
sxu-erzgeb right away.

Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out.
