I would suggest that the "Contact" information in a registration form
be listed as

"web-human@w3.org   (as of registration date, Joe Reagle)"

i.e., give a more permanent email address, but still name a real person
with a date.

One of the problems with IANA registrations in general is that the
"contact" information for finding out more about a registration is
more likely an organizational role than it is a named individual, for
long-lived registration information.

FYI; this is about changing the contact from Joe Reagle to web-human.
