I'm hoping we can resolve the pending subtag requests soon!

 ([acad1959] is fine to me if you need to specify a particular standard; I think the reason that the French was codified by year however was because it was French spoken in the past--we wanted to distinguish the date at which it was used; if the subtag is to include a current and changing variety then I suppose [acad1959] would not be so great but if it is a standard that needs to be specified, then o.k. you will not get an argument from me.

I  think that if we decide that the year is inappropriate and if we decide we need to distinguish this academy from others around the world by spelling it with a k then akademy would be preferable to akadem -- why the truncation anyway?  Variant subtats are allowed eight characters.

[academic] is fine with me too!
