Yes.  An existing, but currently empty registry.

However there doesn't appear to be a registry of the "flags", of
which there IS a single entry (0x80) defined in


So did we miss a needed registry or Notation Data Flags?  Or are the
labels in just not the same as the labels in and the
label disconnect is causing confusion?

My take is that, yes, we're missing a registry for the flags.  I
believe it should be an IETF CONSENSUS registry.
