Expected by *everybody*.

Even users of alternative Belarusian know perfectly well *what* stands
for the term Belarusian out of their group. It isn't some vague
"everything" (including slangs, argos, dialects, or micro-languages),
it's the academic codified standard.

In fact, alternative Belarusian users don't often refer to their *own*
language variant without dubbing it "classic".

In short, no subtag is needed yet for the standard Belarusian.

P.S. Kindly restrain yourself from using the abusive term "Narkamauka".
