Ah, that wasn’t really clear to me from the text. I would have expected to also see IMAP in the name. Also I guess you could give IANA better instructions where to locate the registry (on the same page as the IMAP capabilities or a separate page). But I’m sure IANA will come back to you with these questions.

I would think that having IETF consensus is the important part here (and less the internet status) and that's covered by the IETF Review policy.

Yes, that’s of course right. Sorry.
