> - What (if anything) gets added to the MS language tag registry
Before considering adding anything, I'd think I'd like to see a proposal
from a broad representation of the relevant paleography user community,
vetted to make sure that nothing is considered by anyone to be a
distinct script, and analyzed to identify what iso-glyph categories
exist and what rather are one-off glyph variants that are best handled
BTW, I don't rule out the use of variation selectors for variants in
archaic text. That's quite a different matter from Serbian. That's not
to say I think VSs should be handed out liberally.

I'm not sure since I don't know exactly what the nature of the
distinctions you want are.

That's up to an app.

You misunderstand: GSUB is a table of information within an OT font, and
part of that information can include the 'locl' feature and substitution
lookups associated with that feature.
> - and what of this will always work with any app?
*Any* app? Nothing.
