Look at it also from the directory layout perspective:

Each language is a subdirectory of /ooo-site/trunk/content

We already have an example of similar differences.  For example we
have both a Portuguese website (/pt) and a Brazilian Portuguese
website (/pt-br).

So it sounds like you would do this;

1. create a new directory, content/zh-tw

2. svn copy the existing content from the old directory to the new directory

3. work on that content until it is ready to publish

4. Enter a JIRA issue requesting Infrastructure team to create a
subdomain that points to content/zh-tw

5. Maybe also ask Infra to redirect requests from the old site to the new site
