FYI, the requirement for permanent registration per 
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3864#section-2.1 includes "Specification 
required", which is defined as:

[[
Specification Required - Values and their meaning must be
            documented in an RFC or other permanent and readily available
            reference, in sufficient detail so that interoperability
            between independent implementations is possible.
