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 , instead of looking for 
explanations on the ietf-languages list.
