IANA will obfuscate a "normal" e-mail address for you when they publish 
the registration form.

I've used "doug at ewellic.org" regularly for my submissions, and don't 
get an overwhelming amount of spam at present.

In general it's better to use the registration form template in RFC 
5646, Section 3.5 than to copy an existing form. Doing so would have 
shown that the Prefix fields should canonically appear below the 
Description field, not above them. We can correct that here; I don't 
think this calls for Daniel to submit a third form to the list. However, 
he might want to fix "for to" in the "Intended meaning" section.
