The United Nations Statistics Division has assigned numeric code 680 in
its M.49 standard to the island of Sark.

I don't know whether this will eventually lead to an ISO 3166-1 code
element, and hence a BCP 47 region subtag, for this island of 600
residents.  If this did happen, it might provide a (somewhat) conformant
way to tag Sercquiais (roa-XX), analogous to Dgèrnésiais (roa-GG) and
Jèrriais (roa-JE), without resorting to private-use subtags.
