Let's try that again with proper line breaks:

Is this a practical problem? That is, are there screen readers in use that
don't properly ignore language subtags they don't know about. If there are,
have you filed bugs against those screen readers about implementing RFC 5646
properly?

(FWIW, I think using private use language subtags in public is questionable,
but if software fails to ignore unrecognized subtags and fails to pay attention
to the standard subtags (en and US), that's a bigger problem that needs to go
in the appropriate bug databases.)
