I had a discussion with Hixie at the TP about the registry, and I think we have a viable way forward. I'm currently documenting what was discussed, and should have a draft out shortly (although I'm currently working on about five major efforts, including an implementation of a brand-new protocol).

Regarding the "dead man switch" - Proclaiming ultimatums doesn't seem productive. I've attempted to engage with the HTML5 WG several times through their chairs (albeit a different set), and never got an answer. Saying that proposals are demanded on a deadline now is a bit rich.
