> This is a fallacious argument. If you go back to Mark's original request form for "acade", submitted on 2008-8-25, I think you'll find the intent was to refer to an orthography, not an institution -- indeed, there's no reference to a particular institution:
And how do you describe an orthography, if not referring to the 
rulebook, institution or decree??

The original request was completely over the board with the political 
groupspeak -- in items III and IV you quote, of 5 terms/descriptions, 4 
were originating from "contra-academic" community, and at least 2 
(narkamauka and classical; possibly, also, taraskievica) have their 
inventor in beginning of the 1990s identified as Viachorka (leader of 
the BPF party and primary author of the 2005 be-tarask codification). 
Cf. [Klimaw 2004] or, better yet, try to look up papers authored by S. 
Zaprudski and dated by end-1990s.
