There isn't one. I applied for the others but left KS and the SWF out
for a number of reasons. (It doesn't mean that they should always be
out, just that I was more confident about applying for tags for UC,
UCR, and RLC.) First, neither a formal specification nor a dictionary
of KS available yet. Second, well, how many SWF tags should there be?
SWF/T and SWF/M are different superfically but quite visibly, and then
there's the application of the RLC forms to either. Third, the SWF
specification is a bit thin; it would, perhaps, be better to wait for
a dictionary to be published.

So far all you could use is kw. What are your specific plans, however?
