Yes, you are right, althought the differences are significant, they are not different  languages.

like JHKChan said, it is not neccesary to define zh-tw and zh-hk 
because there are no autual diferences between them.

Since in DEFAULT Apache httpd.conf, there are the following configs:
AddCharset GB2312		.gb2312 .gb 
AddCharset big5		.big5 .b5
, so I think it's OK to let it be as *.xml.zh & *, and 
avoid additional modifications to the config file by the end users. 
But, I think some modifications to the DEFAULT config file are necessary, 
because Traditional Chinese is just a charset of Chinese, not a 
independent language, so the default settings:
AddLanguage tw .tw
AddLanguage zh-tw .tw
are not reasonable, and should be replaced of:
AddLanguage zh .zh.

it can't be 2.0, so what it should be? 1.3? for documents version 2.0?

This is the very thing we hope to happen. :)
