This refers to a registration form dated 2001-12-19 from the RFC 3066
language tag registry.

RFC 3066 and its registry were superseded in 2006 by RFC 4646 (and
subsequently 5646) and the newer Language Subtag Registry. The old RFC
3066 registry is no longer being updated.

In any case, registration forms (in both old and new registries) are
usually meant to track the original request, and tend not to be updated
over time. If this information had been part of the Language Subtag
Registry (say, in a Comments field), it might have been appropriate to
update it.
