The IETF has a checkered past when it comes to pre-assigning names to moving targets. Unless the TLS WG hears from the HTTPbis WG exactly what they want us to do (and that seems unlikely), I propose that this draft does not have any entry for any future protocol. If the HTTPbis WG wants to add to the registry before they have a finished document, they can do that themselves.
