If you have a language for which there is no RFC 3066 tag, you just
go to ietf-languages@alvestrand.no and propose it according to the
form appearing in RFC 3066.  Nothing to it.  If there's no problem
with the registration, the language tag becomes legitimate and is sent
to IANA to register, and that's that.

No cabals here.
