David,

On the "why": it was initially requested by Tom Herbert to clarify that it was not standardized yet (at that time). And this is also the mention ("temporary") next to the allocated code by IANA (see [1]). So it's more about semantic here, nothing that important.

On the risk of change: short answer, there is none. Long answer, once the code is (temporarily) allocated, either the draft make it through and the current code allocation is kept by removing the "temporary" mention, or it is considered as deprecated and removed. Note that extension requests are possible (already made it once). Again, there are two related drafts: draft-ietf-ippm-ioam-data [2] is about to be standardized (see the current process status [3]), while draft-ietf-ippm-ioam-ipv6-options [4] (where the IANA code we're talking about is defined) will follow the same path shortly.
