Since the nice IANA people have already made most (all?) of their registries available at stable URLs as XML, perhaps a collection of useful curated scripts such as you describe don't need to be kept in the same place as the data.

A script could be maintained in github to consume

and produce things like

  special-use-domain-names.mp4 (the movie!)

without having to do any extra work on the IANA side. Well done to the IANA team for doing this, by the way. Having registries available in any structured format (even XML! :-) is a great improvement over the earlier text-based documents.
