I agree with most Aryeh said.

However, versioning registries may be tricky and overkill. Furthermore,
registries aren't supposed to *remove* entries anyway -- at least not in the
case of "we don't like this anymore".

A simpler approach to deal with registries is not to make validity depend on
them. It's fine to issue a warning for unregistered values, but it shouldn't be
a conformance violation.

Also note that having unstable conformance criteria should prevent the IESG
from accepting the specification as a description of the text/html media type.
