Gerard, could you please explain why "be" stands only for the official
orthography? According to the ISO 639-1 "be" defines all the
Belarusian language in any form. Nothing is said anywhere about the
defaults for any language including Belarusian. If some particular
variant of the language need to be specified, this need to be done
with the explicit use of a subtag.
