Those are not free. The previous one was assigned and the new one is
reserved. There is no such thing as a free Vendor ID number that you
could pick for this type of use.

I can request a Vendor ID properly for hostapd use (and did now). The
proper way of handling this in an RFC patch is to have a comment
pointing out that a number needs to be allocated. I'll fill that in once
the allocation is completed.
