I went with that in the update.

As to your comment, the issue is that the source often has a very strong
influence on the content. It is often important to capture that difference
in language tags so that content can be tagged as such, and as or more
importantly, so that it can be used in queries and matching: knowing that
content is ja-t-it rather than ja-t-ru is often as or more important than
knowing that content is en-AR vs en-US.
