I agree with Luc that if this language is being used, it merits a subtag, whatever anyone thinks of this particular reform.
That said, given all the discussion, I think we could try to add an additional reference/citation somewhere, though the authoritative reference could remain as is; but you could add a note (under additional information, or as a second reference; someone who knew Portuguese and the situation might add a brief comment saying, for example, that in addition to the published description, Novo Dicionario defines as of 2009 contains vocabulary for Brazil, whereas ? contains vocabulary for Portugal; that is a long comment however so might need to go under additional information).

> LANGUAGE SUBTAG REGISTRATION FORM
> 1. Name of requester: João Miguel Neves
> 2. E-mail address of requester: joao at silvaneves.org
> 3. Record Requested:
> Type: variant
> Subtag: 1990aolp
> Description: Portuguese orthography based on 1990 agreement.
> Prefix: pt
> Comments: Portuguese orthography as defined by an international
> agreement signed in 1990 and implemented from 2009
> 4. Intended meaning of the subtag:
> This variant subtag is intended to apply to text that uses the modern
> Portuguese orthography introduced in an international agreement signed
> in 1990 and implemented from 2009.
> 5. Reference to published description
> of the language (book or article):
> The full text of the Agreement (Acordo Ortográfico da Língua
> Portuguesa (1990)) as part of the Portuguese Parliament Resolution
> n. 26/91: http://dre.pt/pdf1sdip/1991/08/193A00/43704388.pdf
> The official vocabulary is at http://www.portaldalinguaportuguesa.org/
> as defined by the Minister's Council Resolution n. 8/2011:
What might be nice given all the dispute might be a citation of at least one additonal commercially available dictionary of this,
and/or a short text in this version (perhaps we could have also some sample texts for the [1945colb] variant, one text produced in Portugal, one in Brazil).
Anyone want to suggest dictionaries or sample texts (it would be nice to have the whole text but I think we can take a citation)? (Sorry I cannot
(A google search returned the following:
Novo Dicionario da lingua Portuguesa 2009
Brazilian Portuguese; so you would still need a reference for Portuguese Portuguese I think;
which advertises itself:
"a consulta de mais de 105.000 entradas;
o uso da ortografia com ou sem o Acordo Ortográfico de 1990;
a selecção entre a variedade de português de Portugal ou do Brasil."
Thus something like one of these may do but I don't know what I am doing; you need a Portuguese scholar)
(Other notes: though I would like citations of some sample texts for it, the [1945colb] variant registration seems ready to go; I don't want to hold up this one either; but I do personally like links to sample texts.)
