In particular, I'm looking for a statement of whether this conflicts with current W3C work, represents W3C consensus, etc. 

I see no reason here why the registration cannot point to the W3C
specification. The W3C HTML Working Group is producing the specification
for HTML, and pointing to somewhere would undermine the current process
and effort happening within W3C.

Ian, is there a reason why it isn't the case?
