I don't agree that that ordering is necessary (or desirable). If the YANG type definitions plus change processes are sufficient for a consistent representation of the registries concerned in YANG, and if the YANG continues to track the registry as I understand is intended, then fixes to the registry can happen at any time after the goals of this document have been achieved.

If accuracy of the registries is a prerequisite for progress on this document, we may as well pour concrete over it. Better to treat registry quality and the representation of the registry in YANG as orthogonal, I think.
