It was Nicolas that recommended I ask the question on the list as he was
not sure what the preferred route would be. It was actually him that
brought up the argument of the IANA allocation :-). I would tend to
agree with your argument that it is not very likely that any other
backend will ever use the protocol implementation.

I AM subscribed to the list and get all mails. I just tried to

subscribed in read-only mode :-(
