I think that the IANA considerations could do with more work.

Dropping 'Heartbeat Modes' and 'Heartbeat Message Types'
into the IANA website could cause them to be lost for ever.  If they are
specific  to (D)TLS, then I would want to see that in the title, or else
have them subordinate to something that does.

Second, while I like starting with values with one, you leave zero 
open for the next person to use!  I would suggest reserving 
zero and 255 in both registries.
