I care.

It seems to me that we have registries where we have different documents allocating values from the same space. This makes sense: we need to coordinate things.

IMHO, whether that space is a set of bit values, octets, shorts, longs, or strings doesn’t matter at all.

It should be tracked and coordinated so that we don’t have collisions. Shared namespaces are fine, but anything shared needs to be managed.
