I was actually wondering about maybe a variant of und for some of these concepts?  Some of the “English” based constructed languages diverge pretty far from English.

Or maybe a subtag to indicate constructed languages and then a list of possibilities after that?

IMO that's different than a dialect such as en-US and en-GB.

There's a large number of formalized subsets of languages, which are generally characterized by being fully intelligible to speakers of the language of which they are a subset of. Even if they aren't exactly dialects, I don't see the point in labeling them as separate languages and trying to get them into ISO 693-3 instead of just tagging them here.
