Actually, that FAQ applies to the main controlled hierarchies, (comp.*, humanities.*,
misc.*, news.*, rec.*, sci.*, soc.*, talk.*), also called the Big 8, but not to alt.* or localized hierarchies, where in alt.* anyone can create any newsgroup they want, and in the local hierarchies there are different procedures for each, depending on who controls them.
However, since most providers don't automatically add newsgroups in the alt.* even if a create group control message is received, you probably have to contact each and every provider, and ask them to add the group. However, some providers requires the group to be listed at ftp.isc.org, even if it's an alt.* group...
