I agree. In accordance with the general principles of BCP47, we should have
an "ulster" code. That lets people tag data appropriately, just as you can
tag data as "de" (German) even though there are multiple possible
orthographies or dialects.

If, in addition, there are multiple orthographies that need to be
distinguished, those should be *subtags*, eg ulster-rob2006.
