It's not a homage. It's an actual language subtag that Ian Hixie has informally
specified at http://ian.hixie.ch/bible/english

I've been using en-US-x-Hixie on all of my websites ever since 2008, not as
homage to Ian Hixie, but because I actually prefer his amendments to the
English language. There is actual meaning behind the use of this subtag.
