Does one really need to get into what are officially recognized religions to deal with this case? Why not set a numerical population threshold (percent or absolute) to get officially on the list on forms? If you don't meet it, keep "other" with a write-in as an option. Problem solved. Of course I realize in practical terms many governments don't think in those terms and insist on having an official list, but in theory if they could drop that insistence, it seem simple to solve and simultaneously provides a self-adjusting mechanism to separate cranks from genuinely growing new religions.
