Re: Adding RAINBOW FLAG to Unicode (Fwd: Representing Additional Types of Flags)

I oppose this proposal for the simple reason that it thinks hyphen
separations are not necessary. Possibly true today but there will be
extensions in some future needing more than 2 letters or 3 digits in the
primary subtag. even for iso 3166-2 the regional subtags are very likely
to change and without separators the extension,s will become ambiguous
