What Web-related registrations is IANA successful and useful for? Off the top of my head, the language tag registry is pretty complete. Other than that, the MIME registry doesn't usefully and successfully match reality (e.g. image/svg+xml), the charset registry doesn't match reality (see additional aliases in HTML5) and the URL scheme and HTTP header registries are totally out of sync with the deployed practice.
