The newly created IANA registry includes a detailed specification of the initial contents for the registry, allocations procedures for future registrations are defined, and a reasonable name for the new registry has been suggested
(18) List any new IANA registries that require Expert Review for future
allocations. Provide any public guidance that the IESG would find
