I don't really think this is the best solution to this problem, but it's 
better than the alternative, so in case no better solution is proposed:

SUMMARY
Change nothing.

RATIONALE
A wiki is fine.

DETAILS
Change nothing for now. Once a community is established and actively 
maintaining the registry, update the spec in accordance with their needs.

POSITIVE EFFECTS
No bureaucracy.

NEGATIVE EFFECTS
None.

CONFORMANCE CLASS CHANGES
None.

RISKS
We might have to update the spec at some point in the future if for 
whatever reason the registry moves to another URL. However, that's a risk 
regardless of what solution we use, since if someone sets up a competing 
registry that wins in the market, we'd have to update the spec to point to 
that registry even if the previosuly "official" one still existed.

REFERENCES
None.
