In case you missed it (it was embedded in another posting), I proposed
the -t0- subtag to indicate a transformation path: thus en-t-fr-t0-sq
would indicate text translated from Albanian to French and then to
English (as is often done with Albanian literature because of the lack
of clear copyright law in Albania, so that no one knows who has rights
to what).

Formally, this subtag is needed because stacked -t- extensions are
forbidden by RFC 5646.
