] Consensus: Clear no to all, except a few who wouldn't oppose if Q23

I was just looking at RFC2616,

      Note: This use of a prefix matching rule does not imply that
      language tags are assigned to languages in such a way that it is
      always true that if a user understands a language with a certain
      tag, then this user will also understand all languages with tags
      for which this tag is a prefix. The prefix rule simply allows the
      use of prefix tags if this is the case.

I read this to vaguely support Q23 but certainly with nothing so
strong as actual entailment, which pretty much aligns with the 
quiz responses, which is a good sign.

Cheers,
