> Hi all,
> I could finally get to checking RFC 4645bis and RFC 4646bis. I was
> wondering what it would take to make "pes", and "prs" (defined in ISO
> 639-3 to be for "Western Farsi" and "Eastern Farsi/Dari") to become
> extended languages subtags of "fa" (Persian).
> This is of course for historical reasons too, since Dari has been  
> tagged
> using "fa" or "fa-AF" all these years. (In CLDR and Computer Locale
> Requirements for Afghanistan [http://www.evertype.com/standards/af/]).
> Best,
> Roozbeh
