No. After our 2-week review period (which IANA neither sees nor would
care about), Michael submits the requests to IANA, but as they are
seldom accompanied by an "*URGENT*" message, it usually takes IANA
anywhere from 3 to 10 days to post the new Registry. One of us usually
pings them if it takes longer than about a week.
