The first step is already done -- 'pes' and 'prs' are already 
encompassed by 'fas', which BCP 47 implements as 'fa':


Roozbeh is asking us to add 'fa' to the list of 6 macrolanguages in 
draft-4645bis (Section 2.2, paragraph 2) for which we applied the 
extlang mechanism, on the basis that one of the encompassed languages is 
dominant.  I assume that would be Dari.
