Could you explain why? It is a pun on the french word "orthographe"
which illustrates very clearly the point of the "alternative"

Actually, I found it would be, if registered, one of the best subtags
we have (clear to everyone, not tied to a date, unambigous). [And,
yes, I noticed there are other issues with this proposal. I write here
only about the choice of the subtag.]
