The schema is already a bit crowded with generator-id, sig-id,
classification-id, and revision.

Your suggestion would work if we just asigned 'registered'
vendors/organizations a numeric range of existing sid values.  That
would suffice for now.  If the snort parser/oinkmaster/barnyard and
other tools want to adjust their interfaces to handle the 'vendor/sid'
translation to 'effective-sid' then fine, but it's not necessary.
