You used 1234.IETF.LTRU as an example with "LTRU" in the place
of 'OPI', as a "department within the IETF" if I got it right.

Often IETF WGs are temporary collaborations, closed when they
are ready, which can take years, but they're generally not
permanent institutions. That's probably also understood for
the 'OPI' departments, but maybe you'd want a more persistent
identifier. 

Actually you need the "expert review list", then you'd end up
with 1234.IANA.LSR (hosted and organized by Harald on behalf
of the IESG on behalf of the IETF for IANA or similar, maybe
the "IETF application area" is also involved). Or you could
use BCP47 as 'OPI', BCP47 would exist even if LTRU is closed.

Some random thoughts while reading your older message, bye.
