I started to work on a  TAG document addressing MIME and the web, and wound up separating the stuff about 

registries in general (of which MIME, URI schemes, various HTTP registries)
identifiers in general (i.e., comparing registry, URIs as protocol extension identifiers, URI-identified namespaces, vendor prefixes)
evolution in general (main insight: consider language/protocol, implementation, and specification/standard evolution independently)

Likely too ambitious, but it's been helping me think about issues.

http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2011/12/evolution/

but

http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2011/12/evolution/Registries.html is still a placeholder, but I'd like to summarize the Happiana discussions.

FWIW, and not to my knowledge part of the TPAC or IETF 82 discussions (I wasn't there), there's been some consensus about the possibility of augmenting IANA registries with FAQ wikis to help make the registration process for each registry easier to understand and follow.  I'm on the hook to prepare an initial FAQ for the message header registry.  Others may follow.
