We are starting to go around in circles here. At least 3 or 4 people
have tried--apparently in vain--to explain how the script property in
Unicode works, and this is not even essential to understanding how the
subtag 'Zinh' should be handled in the Registry..
I strongly recommend that anyone who cares about the script property,
but is still not sure how it works, read Unicode Standard Annex #24,
located at http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr24/ , instead of looking for
explanations on the ietf-languages list.
