Thus spake RFC 5646, Section 2.2.5, item 4:

In order to distinguish variants from other types
of subtags, registrations MUST meet the following length and
content restrictions:

1.  Variant subtags that begin with a letter (a-z, A-Z) MUST be
    at least five characters long.

2.  Variant subtags that begin with a digit (0-9) MUST be at
    least four characters long.
