Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change

There are two issues here:

1. Whether there should be a registry mechanism for this extension point,

2. If so, what that registry mechanism should be.

With respect to the first issue, a registry is needed in order to provide
validation tools with the information required to flag typos and other mistakes
in the use of this extension point.

With respect to the second issue, I would be happy to reference whatever
registration mechanism ends up being the one that implementations (validators
in particular, in this case) consider canonical. This is essentially a case
where "the market will decide"; the solution, if the current reference is not
desirable, is to provide a competitive alternative.
