This sounds right to me.

I know there was an issue with organizations adding things to the  
DAV: namespace without using the IETF process. However, this section  
doesn't seem like the right place to address this issue.

Based on Ted Hardie's email of today, it sounds like these will  
continue to be registered, whether in the IANA considerations section  
or no. That said, it would be useful to have a brief sentence to the  
effect of, "the URI registrations for opaquelocktoken and DAV URI  
schemes made in RFC 2518 should still be considered active."
