[gtld-tech] IANA ID for "internal" registrar

Thanks for the clarification. A colleague just noticed that the respective IANA registry (http://www.iana.org/assignments/registrar-ids/registrar-ids.xhtml) contains two more registrar IDs that look like "usable IDs", namely:

3; Registry Installation
8; Test Registrar

Can those be used as well? Our problem is that we also have an "internal monitoring" registrar (which is seperate from the "registry" registrar), and we obviously need a third ID for that registrar as well (besides the 9999 and 9997 ID). Is there a "private ID range" forseen in the registry?
