Works for me. I don't recall now what is in the current proposal, but I'm guessing whatever it was that it fit the pattern o*e*d*, and I can live with anything that fits that pattern (or even o*d*) and satisfies the length requirements.

I don't think the grandfathered tag is "useless". But it is certainly less useful than a variant subtag, since it cannot be used generatively.
Regarding the form that the subtag takes, I agree with others that "oxendict" is not particularly attractive. That's an aesthetic opinion and not a technical objection.
Since Michael was the original registrant, he's entitled to extra consideration here. I support the position that, since he does not agree with other suggestions for the subtag form, we let the current proposal stand, and, assuming he's amenable to this registration, let it go forward.
