A case where it would be not ideal: If gsw-alsatian is
also used on the other side of the Rhine, then it is not
clear to use gsw-FR for "alsatian as spoken in DE". (*1)
Opposite case: gsw-CH is a broad tag, taggers could try
to use gsw-FR for "gsw-CH as used in regions of CH where
French is the predominant language".
The variant alsatian is clearer than gsw-FR workarounds.
*1: Actually I don't *think* that's the case, but to be
sure I'd had to ask folks living in Kehl (the German
town next to Strasbourg)
