There is a bugzilla ticket being discussed during last three years having no result and minimal attraction from Wikimedia. On March 27, 2007 be.wiki was moved to be-x-old.wiki in a hurry, and there were no ideas why 'be-x-old' while the subtag 'be-tarask' proposed and applied by IANA had existed by 2007.
'be-tarask' code in Language Subtag Registry is commented as "representing Branislau Taraskievic's Belarusian orthography as published in "Bielaruski klasycny pravapis" by Juras Buslakou, Vincuk Viacorka, Zmicier Sanko, and Zmicier Sauka (Vilnia-Miensk 2005)", which Belarusian (Taraškievica) Wikipedia strictly follows.
Our community hereby asks the Foundation about what prevents the Foundation from moving the language section to the right prefix; and if there are no irreconcilable contradictions and the sysops are not too busy/lazy, why not to move the section as described in the bugzilla ticket or the other way?
