Note that the only valid primary language subtag for Tatar is "tt", 
derived from the ISO 639-1 code element.  "tat", the ISO 639-2 code 
element, is not valid.

We still have not resolved the question of how to tag transliterations 
and transcriptions.  I pray we come up with a real system, not just an 
ad-hoc solution for this one case.
