If you mean whether it's still reserved for 25519 rather than being assigned
to something else then no, it's permanently assigned to 25519 so won't get
used for anything else.  If you mean is anything else using it for 25519 then
I don't know, 25519 is so new, and non-standardised for ASN.1 use, that I'm
not sure whether anything's using it with things like certs.  That's why I set
up that OID for it, to allow it to be used in ASN.1 objects.
