It absolutely should.  First, if the registries are not for TLS 1.3,
there's certainly no reason to change the references.  The issue we're
talking about isn't just that the reference document has become
obsolete, but that there is a more current reference now -- which
won't be the case for what you're talking about.  Second, anything
that makes sense to do with a reason behind it should always be
acceptable.  I'll make sure the final text makes that point clear.
