Its on hold, pending some closure on smarter ways of managing AS112. Warren is a co-author on a draft which might make it trivially easy to add and remove things to AS112 service, so everyone seemed to think it was worth holding back on an instruction to IANA to delegate, pending that work.
I think ?Leo? observed that for multicast in general, IANA actually does provide some services, and its possible/arguable a certain class of address deserves real delegation. I don't personally think the link-locals are in this set.
