Thanks for the ideas!  

1) boilerplate text for allocations, 
2) flagged issues to one WG 
3) cross-WG review button in datatracker.

As I noted off-list to Job, pattern matching works great when you have a
pattern that can catch it.  Better than nothing, especially if we end up
with good boilerplate text for allocations.  (It might be worth having a
chat with IANA about that.)

Mostly, I think once an issue is flagged, all eyes need to be pulled to one
place.  For the registries in question, IDR@ietf is probably fine, as long
as we reach out.

While I share some of Eric's dislike of process, I don't quite share his
paranoia about process blockers.  When things go awry anyway, the best we
have in process is the appeals process.  If we've reached that point, speed
is doomed anyway.

I'd suggest finding a way to flag stuff is appropriate.  Nits search is one.
Allowing chairs to prod a button in datatracker that says cross-WG review is
needed might be another.  I suspect this may make good wgchairs discussion.
