There seems to be a general lack of IETF design and review of protocols

Assuming "this crucial area" to mean registration protocols, including EPP, IRIS, and DNS, I'd say that there is ample opportunity for review, although what is done is still insufficient. (It will always be "insufficient" to some.)

The IETG Working Group's for these protocols are -

EPP - PROVREG WG closed, see above, but the mailing list still runs
and - DNSOP WG

WhoIs and RRP are not related to WG's so far as I can recall.

These web pages mention mailing lists for the groups. That is how to provide "design and review" without the expense of travel.

I know all about insufficient design and review. I've seen DNSSEC overhauled when the initial review process failed. As co-chair for PROVREG, trying to get wider review was the main job. (Early on, no one wanted to hear about it...)

PS - If you can contribute "client-side" expertise to many of these protocols, you will be in high-demand.
