Comment (by Chouby):

 I went on with my investigations. If I well understood the [http://www
 .rfc-editor.org/rfc/bcp/bcp47.txt BCP47], we could use private use
 subtags. Private use subtags are introduced by a 'x'.

 As such, we could keep a different locale for formal German represented
 by: `de-DE-x-formal`
 If we need to keep a separate locale for Catalan (Balear), we could use
 something as: `ca-x-ES-IB` (ES-IB beeing the
 [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-2:ES ISO 3166-2] code for Balearic

 Both new proposed codes validate at https://validator.w3.org/
