What would this value correspond to?  In other words, what's the protocol
you're trying to add, and how is it different from the already extant values?

It is an alternative to SMTP for some HF environments. It can be
gatewayed to and from SMTP though, so it would be good to be able to
have a token in the Received line to signal that a particular message
was not transported over SMTP at some point. See

required" choice, so that registrations can be added by, say,
Independent Stream RFCs?

I think this is a non-starter.  You're going to need a standards-track RFC
similar to what RFC4356 does for Internet<->MMS gatewaying to get
any real traction.

Plus, having the draft go through the standards process has a high likelyhood
of people pointing out problems and potential improvements in your protocol :)

For this there must be enough interest in discussing it. The protocol is
rather specialized and I don't think there would be enough interest. So
it is a perfectly reasonable to publish it as an Independent Stream RFC.
