My understanding is whatever variants registered on language tag,
it makes users be confused, so it's useless, right?
I have no idea exactly what your point is.  Would you clarify it?

What if the variant tables are different among language tags and 
some gTLD registry would like to adopt it, then the table should be the union
of those tables?
