But this would probably not happen unless a need were established to tag
usage of a particular language during a particular time frame in the
past, specific to a particular "ancient" or historic country, such that
a region subtag for a modern country would not be adequate.
Neither region subtags, nor variant subtags that represent regions, are
for tracing the history of nations.
