Yes. Sadly, that was my pointŠ I don¹t believe we¹ve heard back from Adobe, although I know Leonard was trying to push for a status.
The issue with just adding this to libtiff, and becoming a new source of ³truth² for tags, is that there are literally thousands of tags that were registered with Adobe, that are not referenced in the libtiff code to which you¹ve referred. Undoubtedly, new registrations would stomp all over old ones, which destroys the whole point of a registry.
At the very least, Adobe should turn over the current registry state if they don¹t want to maintain it further. It would be very unprofessional not to do one or the other.

Even, might I ask where the compression tag is registered?
As there is apparently no one no longer in charge of the maintenance of the registry, I'd consider that the registration is: https://gitlab.com/libtiff/libtiff/blob/master/libtiff/tiff.h#L191
