This wouldn't be possible, as 2554bis is already approved ;-).

Read the rest of my sentence - I was referring to publication of 2554bis, not
approval. There have been plenty of cases where a draft has been approved and
then awaited publication for months or even years while numerous other related
drafts are written, approved, and even published. This is especially true with
security-related documents.

In the specific case of 2554bis I don't see anything that would delay
publication - in particular, all normative references are to published RFCs.
But even so, it is possible, albeit unlikely, that an IANA registry for
enhanced status codes could be approved before 2554bis is published, in which
as I noted below a revision with an RFC Editor note would be appropriate if
not required.
