Looking at a couple of the rejected slips, Pomeranian can probably be coded
as nds-BR. Louisiana Spanish would need a separate tag; I don't think even
subnational territory codes would be appropriate here, given that the
dialects of Spanish spoken most commonly in Louisiana are probably more
related to es-MX (and es-CU, maybe?) than to these native dialects. I'm not
even sure they should be one tag, given the change request says "Autonym
(self-name) for this language:
Two separate, unrelated varieties: (1) Adaeseño/Adaesano (2) Isleño".
