Kent, it seems to me that that would make the meaning of the subtag completely opaque, determined solely in a private context. In that case, a private-use tag would suffice.

In that case, I'd say there should be no prefix field in the record for this subtag. Which languages to which this subtag is (appropriately) applicable is defined externally to the language subtag registry, and no need to update that field in the registry if/when another language becomes (appropriately) applicable.
