I would expect the RA to do so, and then I would have a few options:
(a) request a variant subtag on this list (so "en-ewellic")
(b) create a private-use subtag ("en-x-ewellic")
(c) use a script subtag from the ISO 15924 private-use area ("en-Qabe")
Whenever I tag Ewellic-script text, which isn't all that often, I go
with option (c). See also http://www.ewellic.org/conscript-15924.html .
2- and 3-letter language subtags, extended language subtags, script
subtags, and region subtags can only come from the core standards; they
can never be registered as a result of user requests the way we register
