It is a W3C Recommendation, which is the highest status at W3C, and an IETF 
draft standard.

I cannot recall any national or international registration though I do 
remember various specifications I worked on being translated and adopted -- 
I think MITI in Japan -- and perhaps some steps were taken in Europe so 
that these specifications could be used by their own standards.

The W3C uses a URI to identify, among other things, specifications:
  http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xmldsig-core-20020212/ 
the IETF uses the RFC#:   3275.
