Unless I missed a very recent draft (that ought to be refused, IMHO),
Turkey (or Azerbaijani) was not used for the plane 14 language tags,
was it?

And of course, the lowercase of "SS" in German is sometimes , the lower
case of an initial "E" in French followed by a consonnant is more often
"" than "e", except if followed by "x"/"X" or a doubled one (like
"ff") or two consonant, first a nasal (like "mb", "nc", "MP", ...),
the lowercase of Italian (or Corsican) "A'", "E'", ... at the end of a
word is likely to be "", "/", ... (Marco, is it really true? and how
