BCP47 Appeals process

I now support the "akadem" request without the date specification as per my recent e-mail and Mark's request for a variant that is not tied to a specific date.  The "1959" variant should be reserved for that specific request when and if that request is made. Mark's content as he described it will predate 1959.

I believe that Michael still has an objection to the registration for the Belerusian variant subtag, so please don't proceed with that one either until we are clear on what he has or hasn't approved.

The last pending form for that is:

I believe that Michael suggested a variant that hews to the 1959 work, but that was not what I had requested. I requested the broader term that covers the following (copied from Yury):

This includes (and predates!) the specific 1959 variant. I have no objection to someone registering that more specific variant, or a 2008 variant, and so on, as I've said multiple times, but that is not what I'm interested in registering.

The process we are trying to follow involves posting the proposed new
records and registration forms on this list for a week's review.  Since
until now there didn't seem to be any settlement on what was being
proposed, I haven't posted anything.  That is why I called for Michael
to extend the time frame, to iron things out, not to approve something
that hadn't been agreed upon.

It now seems like the Pinyin subtag is the only one where disagreement
persists, so I'll post the relevant information for Wade-Giles and
