To me, it seems like a bad idea to help legacy language tags proliferate. I
think document conformance should require strict RFC 4646 validity and,
furthermore, OpenType values shouldn't leak to HTML. That is, I think we should
require lang=my in HTML and leave it to OpenType implementations to map my to
BRM. This way, the burden of dealing with legacy would be contained to
implementations that deal with OpenType instead of burdening all kinds of
implementations.
