I had a quick chat about it a while back with Patrik (Pittsburgh,
IIRC); he encouraged the attempt. 

That's not to say that it'll be easy, of course. If the WG needs this
registration in a timely fashion, I wouldn't tie it to the
establishment of a registry; that can be done separately.

I believe HTTP headers are considered completely separate from MIME
headers, and the headers that are MIMEish or derived from MIME are
well-defined in 2616.
