Grandfathered tags can't be combined with other subtags, as Addison just
said about "i-ami".
In any case, the use of region subtag "TW" here seems superfluous unless
it is likely there are varieties of Min Nan other than the Taiwan

cdo Chinese, Min Dong
czo Chinese, Min Zhong
mnp Chinese, Min Bei
nan Chinese, Min Nan
When RFC 4646bis is approved and published, "zh-min-nan" will be
deprecated in favor of the regular "zh-nan". It would be nice if
Wikipedia migrated from "zh-min-nan" to "zh-nan" at that point, but
they're not obligated to do so.
