Along the same lines, Addison replied to Debbie:

But only if there is an extension 'i' which defines 'ami' as a subtag within that extension.  It could not have anything to do with the grandfathered tag "i-ami" meaning "Amis," except in the unlikely and inadvisable situation that the extension subtag also has that meaning.

AP> I agree. Or, to put it another way, that tag is syntactically correct (well-formed according to the ABNF) and contains two extensions. The (non-)definition of the ‘i' extension is something I didn’t address in my response.
