Region subtags in BCP 47 identify the language variation typically
identified with that country or region, not the country in which the
speaker happens to be physically located. A person who speaks the
Serbian-standard dialect is speaking "sr-RS" regardless of whether he or
she lives in Serbia, Montenegro, or Bhutan.
