Re: New extension for transformed languages

Use variant subtags. Some of them are already registered in the IANA
database (and supported in the CLDR).

However I'm not sure that there are enough precision between the Rovas
variants. Check the descriptions in the IANA database.

Note: are there really transformations ? Or other orthographic and
grammatical variants (such as word endings, or some mutations of
consonnants) ? I think that the "t" extension is meant to be produced
by some algorithmic process (even if there are exceptions listed to
complement the rules). If there are no specifiable rules (or they are
too complex), then these are dialectal variants for which the "t"
extension is not very suitable, and registering a variant for those
dialects may be more helpful. I don't think the "t" extension is meant
to indicate a transformation occuring within the same (language
subtag, script subtag, region subtag) : just specify the other
variant subtag.
