I'm glad these have been added to the registry. It will put to rest the debate about real vs. obfuscated renderer info. But I think the specs should make more clear what is meant by "privileged code in the browser". This isn't a concept that exists from a standard's standpoint.

Perhaps a sentence like:

       The extension shall be available only to content determined to be privileged by some user agent specific means.

would make it a bit more clear?

Thanks for the advice.  I've updated the specs.
