Request for new Work Item: VC Extension Registry

Hi all,

The Credentials CG currently curates a Verifiable Credential Status
Registry, and will most likely curate other registries related to
Verifiable Credentials. An issue was raised in the Verifiable Claims WG
to consolidate all of the registries into a single document that lists
all the extensibility points that we know of in the spec. So the
combined registry would contain all status schemes, terms of use
schemes, proof mechanisms, evidence schemes, etc. That issue is here:

https://github.com/w3c/vc-data-model/issues/530

On April 30, 2019, the VCWG made the following resolution:

RESOLUTION: Issue #530 should be addressed by creating a Verifiable
Credentials Extension Registry in the W3C Credentials Community Group
and requesting that the registry is adopted as an official W3C CCG Work
Item. Issue #530 should be closed after the W3C CCG accepts the registry
as a Work Item.

This email kicks that process off.

There is a PR that accomplishes this task (if approved):

https://github.com/w3c-ccg/vc-extension-registry/pull/2

Chairs, this is a request for telecon time to discuss and approve this
Work Item.
