Hi Peter,

There is no need to register this. For that matter, you can’t register  
full tags any longer (since the adoption of RFC4646). You can use the  
subtags ‘he’ and ‘Latn’ to form the tag you want, with no need to  
register anything.

Note that the grandfathered and redundant tags in the registry were  
created before the creation of the subtag registry (back in the day in  
which one had to register any complete tag that didn’t use the  
generative mechanism in language tags).
