Anything in the registry beyond the pointer to the defining 
specification is just a shortcut; just because it's not in the registry 
doesn't mean it's not there.

Adding new fields is possible, but we need find a balance; also, it 
requires deciding on the value for all methods in the list, which also 
doesn't come at zero cost :-)
