My mistake:  [hbo] is Ancient or Classical Hebrew and so perhaps there is no need for a 'classic' variant' -- unless you want to distinguish particular variants of [hbo] or something and even then I am not sure 'classic' would be the best name.
Latin and Arabic could however perhaps both use 'classic' variant tags;
and maybe Kryptonese (omitted that as I know really nothing about it).
However I do tend to oppose a generic 'classic' and would prefer thus that a subtag be chosen that just applied to Sanskrit.
(But if we do push for a generic variant I am going to push for prefixes and then as specific descriptions as possible.)
