So it seems like we have rough consensus on this proposal, and also  
rough consensus to test the new registry before adopting it. Currently  
the owner if this issue is listed as "Chairs": <http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/issue-status.html#ISSUE-027 
 >. We do not want to have an issue on our hands indefinitely, where  
the actual next action is not ours.

Therefore, we would like to ask for a volunteer to take the action to  
test the registry. Given the estimated time frames for this registry,  
that action would have a due date 5-6 weeks from now. If we do not  
find a volunteer within a week, we will proceed with a Call for  
Consensus on this Change Proposal.
