I believe that Michael still has an objection to the registration for the
Belerusian variant subtag, so please don't proceed with that one either
until we are clear on what he has or hasn't approved.

The last pending form for that is:

I believe that Michael suggested a variant that hews to the 1959 work, but
that was not what I had requested. I requested the broader term that covers
the following (copied from Yury):

> The "academic" (normative, literary) form, existing in a relatively
unchanged form for 75 years,

This includes (and predates!) the specific 1959 variant. I have no objection
to someone registering that more specific variant, or a 2008 variant, and so
on, as I've said multiple times, but that is not what I'm interested in
