I gathered from Avram's message on March 14 that the different
orthographic conventions for Tatar were not imposed by the ALA-LC
transliteration schemes, but were a normal part of Tatar writing, in
place at the time the documents were written.

Given that, I don't see what is so broken about the subtag 'alalc97'.
