The name of the subtag name is not an issue for me. I agree on 'periard' or any name is not an insanity.

I come across a third site yesterday. ( will notice you if I find more...

both of us agree on the same spelling when we use the regular characters. In addition, he suggest new characters to replaces some. Even though he is clearly pro-ortograf, he point out that his new script can be used in traditionnal spelling. That's it. I don't know whether he wants to 'officialize" his new script but I don't think it is the point here.
