(An alternative--if the particular standard referred to needs to be specified but a more generic subtag is to be registered first--would be to register a subtag like akademia and then add additional variants indicating the years of the standard as needed. But by doing things this way we are saving a step--at least until a new standard becomes the norm.
I prefer /1959acad/ over /acad1959/ just because there're already tags
with equivalent semantics (French). But in principle /acad1959/ is fine,
On subject of generic tags: from what more experienced people said, I
was given to understand there can be no generic tags? In case it is not
so, the /akademia/ seems feasible choice.
