You just said that MS localizes into quz. Not the other forty. And unless there is some danger that quz will be tagged with Cyrl or Hans, what is the "actual need"?

So you want to add subtags here to plug a leak based on the way you have "really" implemented. Surely your implementation can compare strings in a table without having to parse them.
