RFC 1766 provides extension methods; if you don't want to use an ISO
639 language code, you can use i- and an IANA registered term, or x-
and anything you want.  IANA has "i-default" registered for "Default
Language Content", defined in RFC 2277; that sounds like a good one to
use for a default value.
