I haven't. I have no contact with that RA; if someone else does (hint,
hint) that would be a Good Thing. I shouldn't think either RA is going
to change the interpretation of the existing 'sh', 'sr', 'hr', and 'bs'
code elements, though.

Well, an obvious point is that Certain Companies systematically ignore
variant subtags. Arguably that's mostly because they don't care about
spoken versions, though there *is* (mostly older) literature in both
Chakavian and Kajkavian varieties.
