Hi WG, what is the current stance on changing the IANA Considerations for tag registration?

I find the RFC 7049 tag registration scheme (0-31 = standards action, 32-255 = specification required, 256+ = FCFS) to be acceptable.

However, I think that maybe we want to encourage more tag registration, while also having a bigger space for more review and publication. I read the minutes and am not sure if there is a current stance or a group sense on the matter, at least within the past 12 months.
