Hello Jeroen,

I think this is a version issue. The current version of
validator.nuvalidates language tags against RFC 5646
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5646
that is, the current RFC for language tags. The previous version validated
against RFC 4646
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4646
the predecessor of RFC 5646.
