In that case, we certainly want to make sure that we include reference
to GOST 7.79 System A in the comments field of the ISO 9:1995 subtag.

It would be appropriate to add an additional subtag for GOST 7.79
System B. Is it equivalent to alalc97 for the languages it covers, by
any chance?

I will try to sit down and draft a new ISO 9:1995 subtag request.
Yury, would you like to try drafting one for GOST 7.79 System B or
others of the transliteration systems you listed? For variants like
these that are established by international standards processes, the
form is relatively straightforward.
