Which is entirely in order here I think. But would probably be enforced
anyway if there was expert review requirements for registering
product/version pairs.

+1, with a little spellcheck 

WebSocket   The Web Socket protocol      [draft-hixie-thewebsocketprotocol]

Regarding TLS that protocol is already at revision 1.2, and by the time
someone actually tries to use HTTP Upgrade for the purpose it's probably
some revisions later... but I doubt the registry will be updated even if
people starts to use TLS/1.2.
