Your attempt at clarification is equally confusing to me, since it, too, 
seems to have nothing to do with the current effort.

The effort is to create a registry -- which obviously differs from 
existing practice -- and to have that registry be used, going forward. 
Both the creation and the future use deviate fundamentally from 
'existing practice'.
