There is no requirement to register subtags for all such dialects at 
once, and no reason we couldn't register others later if the need 
arises.  It was reasonable for Michael to ask, though.

Below is the proposed record corresponding to Bittor's registration 
form.  The dates assume that the review period began Monday.
