Brian Carpenter asked Mark and I privately:

I'd really like to have the authors' and shepherds' comments
on section 2.2 before casting my ballot on this. Did the WG consciously
decide that en-*-*-*-en was valid, and distinct from

en-*-*-*-en is not functionally distinct from "en-*-*-en" (or en-*-en, en-en, or en-en-*, for that matter).

It is possible to construct a language range syntax that uses RFC 3066bis's syntax. In such a syntax the position and number of wildcards would be significant. However, the WG discovered that none of the algorithms we ended up with in this document needed such a syntax. Therefore we didn't document one.
