Sure, that's true. We inherit language from json-ld, and even the `inLanguage` property we inherit from schema.org already says to "please" use a tag from bcp47, which I assume means a registered tag. We're not actually defining our own.

I just brought this up with the publishing working group and it appears that no one cares too much about invalid language tags, assuming, as you say, that the end result is no harm. So I guess I'm just the outlier worrying too much. :)
