Right, we've got them encoded as [GBENG], [GBSCT] and [GBWLS], but the
codes used do not specify clearly about which region code standard they are
refering to. We just see that it's an ISO3166-1 country/territory code
followed directly (without separator) by sequences of letter/digits, all of
them converted to RIS and surrounded by a the same initial emeoji code and
the DEL from RIS.

The problem is how to choose the codes for the letter/digits in the second
part, if they ever come from ISO3166-2 after dropping the hypen separator
(this is the case here, see or
somewhere else.
