I think so, from Cary's https://groups.google.com/g/generic-abi/c/satyPkuMisk/m/KwTF_U8rBAAJ
"I will add this to the ELF spec, as proposed below:".

This question isn't alone. Carlos O'Donell asked on https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libc-alpha/2022-July/141130.html
"Is there a public repo that I can use to cross-check the glibc value with the accepted ELF gABI value?"


Let me summarize the history:

Roughly since 2015 https://groups.google.com/g/generic-abi/c/IakWYdGABjQ/m/7zTiAVveBAAJ
("Heads Up: John Wolfe no longer at Xinuos Inc"), the official generic ABI website
http://www.sco.com/developers/gabi/latest/contents.html no longer gets update. (I believe the last
change was https://groups.google.com/g/generic-abi/c/dBOS1H47Q64/m/jwc9xA9o0IsJ
"Proposed gABI addition: SHF_COMPRESS").

Since https://groups.google.com/g/generic-abi/c/9OO5vhxb00Y/m/Y0WthoOcCQAJ ("Ongoing Maintenance of the gABI"), 
Cary Coutant takes on the maintenance of the gABI spec.

At the moment there is no repository. If help is needed, I am happy to convert the
/developers/gabi/latest .html files to Markdown or reST.
