I believe this is everybody's intent.
For what it's worth, the registration form for 'hepburn' said:
"If for particular purposes a need arises to tag specific, well-defined
subvariants of Hepburn, they can be added in future."
without reiterating how such a tag would be built, since this is
basically already described in BCP 47. But it would be harmless to
change the present text to "Additional subtags may be registered *for
use with 'simple'* to indicate specific varieties if necessary."
