I'm confirming two points made during MMUSIC this morning:

#1 - that there is no disagreement to remove the '_' prefix for 
proprietary label components, such as


where foo and bar are not IANA registered.

#2 - that there is no disagreement that as a result of #1 being 
acceptable, the bar to IANA register new label components will be no 
lower than "specification required".

Additionally, I will work to resolve each of the known open items 
stated in the preso:

- new ABNF (get with Paul K.)
- separate label component into clearer sections
- clearly state which applications go with which categories, and 
which adjectives go with which applications.

I'll also look into writing a short section on guidelines for how to 
properly extend or register new label components for future work.

Comments and questions are appreciated.
