but there is no such thing as "Scottish Gaelic (gd) - Ireland (ie)". Scottish Gaelic is not an

Whilst one has to go back in time, there is a use case for gd-IE that
that fails when one uses ga-IE as a workaround. One does have to go
further back in time, for pgl-ie-212 to be the required setting.

This is where the UI designer has to decide what percentage of the user
base can be pissed off, because the UI doesn't support their specific
use-case. Do you aim at a minimal 1,000,000 combinations (^1), or the
basic core of 275 million combinations (^2), or go to the full
1,188,137,600,000 theoretically possible combinations (^3).

^1:  Minimal setup: 1,000 languages, 100 countries, 10 writing systems,
no modifier.

^2: Basic Core: 2,500 languages, 110 countries, 100 writing systems, 10

^3: Full: 17,576 languages, 676 countries, 1,000 writing systems, 100
