Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: HTML relies on many other specifications and registries, and the
practice is well accepted in the standards world.  For instance, HTML requires
that lang attribute values be valid according to BCP47, which in turn defers to
an IANA registry.  It is not practical to include all registries in HTML
proper.

If poorly-written regulations require organizations to conform to particular
versions of standards, without allowance for revisions to those standards over
time, that's something that has to be fixed in the regulations.  We are not
responsible for people who use our standards in ways they aren't intended to be
used.  Authoring conformance requirements are designed to inform authors of
possible errors and encourage them to voluntarily fix their pages -- they
aren't meant to be mandatory.
