#308: need to reserve "negotiate" as auth scheme name

I've got a TODO to mark the authentication scheme name "negotiate" as 
reserved (in draft-ietf-httpbis-authscheme-registrations); see 


- the registry doesn't have a "status" entry; should we add that (with 
what values)?

- if we keep the registry simple, what's the reference we would put in? 
A pointer to a new appendix in 
draft-ietf-httpbis-authscheme-registrations, noting that "negotiate" is 
reserved as a scheme name, but it's not a valid scheme as per our 

- that being said, should there be an erratum on RFC 4559 pointing out 
the problems?

Best regards, Julian
