I disagree. 

But to move forward. On assumption that registries in question will be
reasonably managed it is very unlikely that such situation will ever appear.

But it is bad in principle if conformance is depending on external resource
which can constantly change and there is no trusted gatekeeper for this
registry. So I still think that each published edition of HTML5 should either
include snapshot of those registries or release relevant conformance criteria
to allow any values.
