If you're referring to the message header field provisional registry, 
here's the text:

4.2.2.  Provisional Message Header Field Submission Template

    Registration as a Provisional Message Header Field does not imply any
    kind of endorsement by the IETF, IANA or any other body.

    The main requirements for a header field to be included in the
    provisional repository are that it MUST have a citable specification,
    and there MUST NOT be a corresponding entry (with same field name and
    protocol) in the permanent header field registry.
