Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The spec does define a process  it says "Anyone is free to edit the
WHATWG Wiki MetaExtensions page at any time to add a type", and lists the
conditions such registrations have to follow. Beyond that, there's no need for
a hard-and-fast process, and we can let a community grow around the wiki page
to maintain it if they so desire. So long as they're not jerks, I don't see any
particular problem  and if they are, then they'll just be ignored, and another
registration mechanism will be the de facto standard instead.
