If these "real implementations" are for identifying and searching
linguistic content, then I think the proposed S-S values are probably a
good idea and "support" them (for whatever that's worth). If they are
for determining keyboard layouts and font assignments and "binding to
locale data" — none of which is what the Registry is for, IMHO — then I
think they are probably not.
Either way, I will do whatever clerk work is needed, though strictly
speaking, Section 3.5 tends to imply that the requester should bear much
of the brunt.
