I agree with @fantasticfears 's comments. Allowing user to mark a label in zh is not accurate enough. I even thought of, in an aggressive perspective, we should use zh-cn/tw/hk/mo/sg instead of plain zh-hans/hant, when specifying the label and description for an entity. After all, aside from fallbacks (e.g. zh-tw --> zh-hant), wikidata can automatically use, e.g. zh-tw label when a user request for zh-hant label, but there is no zh-hant label directly assigned to this entity.

It is not in use and never really was. (Code indicating it is not in use:
I'm not entirely sure why it is still in the API output and what the plans
with it are, but my guess is that it is still there for compatibility
reasons and that there is no intention of using this key in the future. If
I where creating an API client I'd just ignore this key.
