Well, I believe this wasn't made quite clear in the previous discussion.

From my patch, I feel tags of "-official" sorts are to be completely
avoided, if only because of there being no "-unofficial" varieties to
complement them, only deviations from the codifications. And as soon as
the codification (or half-codification) of something "non-official" is
done, the "who" and "when" get known too, then.

Need I? If so, an umbrella "be", possibly. There's currently a
discussion of sorts, whether to consider Trasianka a sort of a modern
dialect or just a deviation from the norm. This is purely academic
issue, however, as there are no texts in T. produced consistently.
