I would like to add a new value to the "WITH protocol types" subregistry

<https://www.iana.org/assignments/mail-parameters/mail-parameters.xhtml#mail-parameters-5>)
which is not going to be specified in an IETF Stream RFC. The current
registration policy is defined in RFC 5321 as "Standards Action or
IESG-Approved Experimental RFC". Is the registration policy too strict
and should it be relaxed to allow something like "Specification
required" choice, so that registrations can be added by, say,
Independent Stream RFCs?

A change to the sub-registry policy would require an "Updates" to RFC 5321. The registration policy could be considered as too strict if there are people unable to go through the process because of IETF "barriers". As a comment about a specification in the Independent Submissions Stream, the registration request will still require IESG approval.
