1.  Introduction

   [BCP47] permits the definition and registration of language tag
   extensions "that contain a language component and are compatible with
   applications that understand language tags".  This document defines
   an extension for specifying the source of content that has been
   transformed, including text that has been transliterated,

   source.  It may be used in queries to request content that has been
