I looked at...
The mechanism appears to me bizarre, inadequate, and pointless.
The paper also answers none of my questions, like:
What is the purpose of this?
What is the intended audience?
Why mess with a perfectly standard format like UTF-8?
Why cannot other mechanisms be used?
And it says nothing of the adequacy of the language tags; and the draft
(rfc1766) of the language tags paper itself doesn't actually define any tags.
I sincerely hope that something like this is not adopted.
