Good point. So far we kept the registries inline.

The only *new* registry that we added before is for method names, and 
indeed we have the registrations for all non-HTTP/1.1 methods in a 
separate document 
(<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-method-registrations-latest.html>).

In this particular case, we only have one document (RFC 5861) defining 
the extension, so the easiest way to address this would be for Mark to 
send an IANA registration request once the registry is in place.

Best regards, Julian
