+1 to Andrew's response and analysis. It is pretty inexcusable to have 
an IETF-vetted BCP that says how this registry is populated, and then 
say "we didn't really mean that, we want to be more restrictive". If you 
really want to have that much control over the registry, please write 
rfc5395bis and see if others agree.
