If the NFA is essentially tax legislation then sliding an amending clause - that reopens the Registry - into one of the various multiple volume tax bills would seem to be an effective way of progressing the issue.
I'd note that NFA 34 seems on its face to run afoul of the prohibition of taxing rights - see Minneapolis Star Tribune case. However, as others have noted thats a case very much for the future.
