... and to be crystal clear about what "anyone" means... It doesn't mean
"anyone in the Working Group" or "anyone in the Community Group", it
means any person on the planet with the ability to open a Github pull
request.

The DID Specification Registries document is meant for developers to
signal to other developers about the sorts of global extensions they've
made to the DID ecosystem. It's meant to be a level playing field, which
means that you DO NOT have to be in a W3C/IETF/etc Working Group to
register extensions and you DO NOT have to be in the W3C CCG to register
extensions.

You just need to be a person that writes a specification and opens a PR
on the registry.
