[Dwarf-Discuss] Reserving a new DW_AT_calling_convention value

I would like to use a new DW_AT_calling_convention attribute value in  
the range DW_CC_lo_user .. DW_CC_hi_user. As far as I can tell, the  
only one currently in (public) use is DW_CC_GNU_renesas_sh (= 0x40).  
My question is: how does one go about reserving/obtaining such a  
number? Do you just take the next one that appears to be available and  
submit patches using this value to binutils (for elf/dwarf.h) and gdb?  
(and possibly dwarflib, and maybe others)
