Not at all. The registry would be controlled by an International Standards Organization committee.
As you have raised the matter, here is a quote from a document that I submitted to the ISO/IEC 10646 committee in January 2012.
My current thinking is that an ISO committee entity would choose sentences and symbols and then approach the ISO/IEC 10646 committee on an inter-committee liaison basis to ask for character code points to be assigned to the symbol and sentence pairs. For the avoidance of doubt I have, as at the time of preparing this document, made no application to ISO about such a committee entity carrying out such activities.
My thinking is that that ISO committee entity could potentially be one of the following.
1. A new ISO committee, generated for the purpose.
2. The ISO/IEC 10646 committee, or a subcommittee of the ISO/IEC 10646 committee.
3. An existing ISO committee, other than the ISO 10646 committee, or a subcommittee of that committee.
