I would note that the purveyors of a "non-standard specification that
is already deployed and in successful use" must have somehow obtained
their own number assignment without the IANA's help, or this situation
could not arise. And before that specification was successfully
deployed, it may well have been "a wild idea".
There seems to be a logical disconnect here. What am I missing?
