Concerning "AQ", and with consideration to the internationaly recognized definition of this territory, a correct interpretation could be that the related languages are the
four languages (english, french, russian, spanish) that give an official linguistic version of the Treaty on Antarctic (Washington, 1st december 1959) and of all subsequent international acts on Antarctica..

No, we are discussing a subtag 'akadem' (which may be "spelled differently" upon acceptance). This subtag can then be used to form a variety of different tags, including all of the four shown below. It may not make any *sense* in some of those tags, just as the region code 'AQ' (Antarctica) rarely makes any kind of sense in a language tag.
