draft 10 and 3166

The initial state of the registry is covered in the draft pretty clearly: someone (in draft-10 this would be Mark and I) creates a draft registry and submits it to this list. Debates about specific items follow to resolve inclusion (or exclusion) of specific items such as YU and NH and IM. Then the initial registry is approved.

Future additions can be done via registration. Once registered, subtags can't be removed, so one presumes that the initial registry will be rather more conservative about what it lets in.
