Perhaps the following would be a good compromise (or perhaps not).

Have an eight-bit field whose values are taken from the "IGP Algorithms" 
Registry.

Have another eight-bit field whose values are taken from a new 
BIER-specific registry.  I don't know, maybe call it the "BIER Underlay 
Algorithm Modifier" registry.  The way the underlay paths are computed 
for a given BIER sub-domain is determined by the pair of codepoints: 
<IGP Algorithms codepoint, BIER Underlay Algorithm Modifier codepoint>.

The default value for the "BIER Underlay Algorithm Modifier" field would 
be zero.   The value zero in this field would mean "just use the IGP 
Algorithms field to figure out how the underlay paths are computed."  
Non-zero values could be used to add additional nuance. Existing drafts 
can say "the use of non-zero values in this field is outside the scope 
of this document".

The registration policy for the new registry could save about  half the 
values for "standards action", and about half for FCFS.  And a few for 
Experimental.  (This would be a good policy for the IGP Algorithms 
registry as well, imho.)

This seems to have minimal impact on existing implementations, and 
leaves room for further development of BIER while avoiding entanglements 
(or peceived entanglements) with other technologies that might be 
considered controversial.

Now perhaps the WG can proceed to the really important issues, such as 
how to best design the T-shirts.  (Though frankly I'd rather get a few 
more home-brewed beers than a T-shirt.)
