My personal opinion is that choosing to leave the definition of the 
Warning header field without such registry is unacceptable just because 
the values used in it should be tracked somewhere.  RFC 2616 left this 
issue unresolved.

Claiming that this header field is not used, I think is makes sense to 
re-register it as "deprecated" or "historic", per RFC 3864.  Otherwise, 
my proposal is quite useful, IMO.
