Let me extend the question: what happens if one such OS decides to add another 
constant for something that Linux doesn't have yet. Who decides the value?

Should we have H. Peter Anvin resurrect the LANANA so we can have a central 
registry of codes? Should BSD kernel developers submit Linux kernel patches? 
Should it be first come, first serve?
