Reminds me of my thoughts when I got "rumgr" as the subtag for
Rumantsch Grischun from the Lia Rumantscha (rather than the
obvious-to-me rm-grischun....). After having told them that subtags
are more for machine use and the exact value isn't as important,
saying "that's a weird tag" seemed inappropriate.
