Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

How OpenType behaves is up to OpenType.

Within HTML, the intent is that so long as you use only conforming values, the
behaviour is clear, and if you use non-conforming values, HTML UAs will not
treat them as value values and non-HTML contexts built on top of HTML, e.g.
CSS, will operate as defined by those contexts. This is because I do not think
we want to require that browsers validate every language tag before trying to
match CSS selectors, e.g.

I do not think the sentences quoted in comment 11 contradict each other; one
applies to HTML UAs, and the other applies to the input passed to non-HTML
contexts.
