Variant subtag request: iso91995

I could provide the factography for all (give or 
take) those translits I've mentioned, but really 
wouldn't know how to proceed with all those 
request fields etc. If someone of Old Hands 
would step in?..

BTW, I didn't remember the header of the GOST 
well enough and so I've mislead you on two 
points. CIS inter-state standard GOST 7.79-2000 
(might also be known as GOST 7.79-2001) replaced 
GOST 16878-71, indeed, but isn't 'including 
something of ISO 9', it *is* ISO 9:1995 
(verbatim translation). Here is the 1) 
publishing info and 2) part of the official title:

1) Правила транслитерации кирилловского письма 
латинским алфавитом. — Соответствует ISO 9-1995. 
Взамен ГОСТ 16878-71. — Утв. 2001. — (Система 
стандартов по информации, библиотечному и 
издательскому делу).
2) ГОСТ 7.79-2000 (ИСО 9-95)

Here 'соответствует' means 'is equivalent to', 
but with more emphasis on sameness. Also, those 
sub-parts aren't named 'Table' but 'System A' 
and 'System B' (and include several tables).
