i'd say that if it's used widely and consistently and if somebody is 
willing to document that, it would be very useful if it were registered. 
but a little voice tells me that it might not be all that easy to figure 
out how exactly it is used/implemented, and that there might be some 
diverging interpretations of how to use/implement it...
