The registry is not an enforcement mechanism.  It's there to help developers who 
want to be good cooperative citizens of the Web and Internet.  And this thread 
is evidence that it's false that no one (as opposed to not everyone) reads it.

I agree about accommodating use-cases, but for that we need discussion (as 
opposed to unilaterial id-space squatting), and that seems to have been lacking 
until now.
