At least in ICU we assemble something like sr_Latn's <import source="hr"
type="search"/> into syntax with a language tag like [import
Therefore, the type needs to be a valid subtag, with [a-z0-9] and at most 8

I agree that '0' is not pretty, but it seemed like the best possible prefix
given the constraints, and given that none of the existing types begins
with a digit.

Also, as I said in my previous email, if y'all do want more than a naming
convention, then it should probably be an element, not a non-distinguishing
