We went with stabilizing 802.2 in ISO/IEC because it was a special case - it is the basis for protocols that are still in wide use and fundamental to the operation of our current standards even though new protocols aren't using it. We wanted to keep alive the reference for the existing protocols (e.g.: the BPDUs for the spanning tree protocols). We had no plans and expected no future plans to extend its usage or update it.
Stabilizing 802.2 in ISO/IEC was a good fit for that - existing protocols have the reference that they rely on and we don't need to do any maintenance to keep the reference alive.
I wouldn't be in favor of going that route for anything other than that special case.
