HTTP/2.0 issue: magic method registration

When processed by an HTTP/1 server the HTTP/2 magic string intentionally 
appears to be a valid request-line with method "PRI".

I am thinking this method needs a registration in the registry created 
by HTTPbis 1.1 documents. That will allow preventing its use in any 
situations other than HTTP/2.0 setup and help point out to implementers 
that they may need to handle it differently to other extension methods 
(silent pass-thru or reject but no fancy "fixing missing headers").
