Dear John Cowan,
Dear CE Whitehead,
Dear Stephane Bortzmeyer,
1-AFNOR's experimental standard XP Z 44-002 code elements are alpha-5 code elements, not alpha-4.
2-You can see from the today's joint extract of AFNOR's Internet site that this standard is a perfectly valid one, without any possible doubt.

More precisely: since March 1995, the promulgation date of RFC 1776, which is the original language-tag RFC.

Region subtags, as I have said, are just a special case of variant subtags. We use them because we always have, because we can, and because they're there.

Since the AFNOR standard is abandoned, we aren't likely to use it.
In any case, its 4-letter codes conflict with script codes.
