As far as anyone can tell, Adobe still maintains the registry of the private
tags
but has never made any information of who owns what public. It has always
been the assumption that if an organization wanted to make usage of their
tags public, they would take the initiative.  This has happened several times,
including the tags used in implementing GeoTIFF, but to my knowledge the
only defacto repository of such information is the libtiff "tiffio.h" header
file
itself.
