New T Extension fields and subfields [RFC 6497

BCP47 <> and Unicode Locale/Language
These T extensions provide for the identification of transforms that can
be used for tagging content or requesting resources. The new T extension
fields and subfields are defined in the following files, as part of the
CLDR 21.0.2 release <>:

    * i0 - Input Method Transformations: bcp47/transform_ime.xml

    * m0 - Machine Translations: bcp47/transform_mt.xml
    * x0 - Private Use fields: bcp47/transform_private_use.xml

For example:

    * "zh-t-i0-pinyin", to indicate Chinese text generated with a pinyin
      input method
    * "en-t-k0-dvorak", to identify a Dvorak keyboard for English
    * "it-t-k0-osx-extended", to request an extended Mac keyboard for

The private use subfields can be used for private agreements, such as:

      Russian for use on a mobile device, or
    * "ja-t-de-m0-und-x0-medical", to identify a machine translation
      from German to Japanese with a specialized dictionary for medical
