That's not what "IETF Consensus" means in the context of
IETF Consensus - New values are assigned through the IETF
consensus process. Specifically, new assignments are made
RFCs approved by the IESG. Typically, the IESG will seek
input on prospective assignments from appropriate persons
(e.g., a relevant Working Group if one exists).
Okay, so we're being overly anal here. Like we can control the world
of protocol extensions.
