I think it's a case of a list member asking for more information.

The *reviewer* can't invent new rules like "produce 50 web sites",
the *reviewer* can only decide based on the info or lack of info
And the *reviewer* can't decide that "2004-ortograf" is a subtag,
no info requested by a list member can change this.  If English
oddities like Shavian are good enough for standards, then being
very picky with non-English oddities here is a difficult course.

I vaguely recall "a book in my shelf" demand for baku1926, that
is why I checked a reference "sanctioned" by TUS 5.0 for frr and
company (as it happens the reference roughly confirmed baku1926,
and I figured out that it is likely too old to confirm Kore as
Suppress-Script, the KP standard noted in TUS is relatively new)
