Variants don't normally have complex structure like this. The Resian
variants can form a lengthy chain, like "sl-rozaj-biske-1994", but
that's not quite the same. And you couldn't have single-letter variants
like 'm' and 'f' and '7' anyway.
What you're describing sounds more like an extension. This might be
wholly appropriate, if some list members feel these gender (etc.)
distinctions are "information that is commonly used in association with
languages or language tags but that is not part of language
