Michael Everson <everson at evertype dot com> was quoted by CE:

>> I disagree. The statement of what Zinh is in the registry for is 
>> already in Doug's draft. There is no reason to add an imperative 
>> statement telling users of the registry Not To Use It.
> I did not find it only Michael's citation of it . . . (I went through

Such a statement would belong in draft-4646bis, preferably Section 4.1, 
not in draft-4645bis.  Draft-4646bis-21 was submitted to the co-chairs 
for IETF Last Call before this controversy erupted about the use (or 
anticipated misuse) of 'Zinh'.

I would hope that some kind of statement, akin to the bullet points in 
item 5 of Section 4.1, could be added to draft-4646bis before approval 
and publication, but there is no guarantee that this will happen.
