For what it's worth, I agree.

That is, I believe *all* of the Portuguese orthographic variant subtags
should have just "pt" as their Prefix. It doesn't make any difference
whether this or that government formally ratified any of the reforms.
What matters is whether writers of Portuguese, in whatever country,
actually use (or used) the indicated spelling conventions.

However, this point should be particularly uncontroversial for
'colb1945', for the reason João gave.
