So, if I understand you correctly, you expect 
(only) to pick a UI message template and change 
it a little before the actual use, and that 
little (grammatical) change would be completely 
provided for by the 4 combinations of 
actor/recipient genders in subtag.

What you want happens to be a small-ish hints 
system for the grammar engine, not a tag for 
'gender speech/mode'. Shouldn't you refer to 
grammar in subtag description, then?
