Another way to look at this: if you declare "tt-Arab-alalc92", you are by implication also declaring "tt-Arab". As Martin indicates, the latter contradicts any declaration of using alalc92.

That much is OK.

Nope! The "Arab" subtag is declaring specifically that 'this content is comprised of Arabic-script text', not that it has some indirect relationship to _other_ content that is in Arabic script.
