This is a good place to ask such questions.

For very limited-use schemes, is it necessary to submit a provisional registration as per https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp35#section-7 ?

See https://tools.ietf.org/html/bcp35#section-6:

    As such, a unique namespace MUST be used and 'provisional'
    registration is strongly encouraged (unless the scheme name is
    constructed from a domain name), as discussed in Section 3.8.

"very limited use" isn't guaranteed to stay that way.

Regards,   Martin.
