I'm with John on this one.

I recall discussing attrlea fwith Dave way back at the Orlando IETF.

I argued then that we need a top level registry for the likes of _tcp,
_udp, _dmarc, etc, but I see absolutely no need for a new shrunken
registry to replace the port and services registry already used for SRV.

By all means define a second level registry for those two-level
underscore labels that aren't used for SRV, though.
