It hasn't been my impression that ao1990 is as vague as that. I claim no particular expertise in Portuguese so can't debate those details. Even if it is as vague as you suggest, though, how is this categorically different from es-419? That is at least as vague if not more so, yet nobody (now) debates the utility of that tag.

The tag "pt" (i.e. no subtags) covers *all* variants of Portuguese.
Apparently "pt-ao1990" would cover almost all (current) variants of written Portuguese. So at best, IIUC, you get that it is not very old-fashioned, and that it is written.
