anyone has insight on how that is usually handled? I am aware of the two

Simplified and Traditional scripts. Where the major territory using the
traditional script is Taiwan (though other places use it too) and the
major Simplified is Mainland China.

Personally I suggest "zh-Hans" and "zh-Hant" are the best mailing list/
website names to use to distinguish between Simplex and Traditional
rather than zh-CN and zh-TW and side-step the "Taiwan is a temporary
breakaway province" blah-blah. *shrug*, I'm no expert however
