Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Consistency with RFC 5988 isn't goal. Registering types is so
trivial at this point that there's no need for an even easier mechanism. And of
course we don't really want to encourage widespread proprietary values.
(Privately used proprietary values are already possible without registering the
type: just say it's ok and so long as all of you in your community agree, then
it's ok. Same with any other extension to any other standard in the world.)
