True.  However "earlymod" seems to be formed from English words, not from words in French or some other language, so for this reason I was not so troubled as some by its use for this variety of English.    (However, in some cases it's hard to say what languages were used to form a subtag, for example, the subtags [1959acad] or [1694acad].)
