      A registry for commonly used metrics. Independent registries
             draft-bagnulo-ippm-new-registry-independent-00

Abstract

   This document creates a registry for commonly used metrics, defines
   the rules for assignments in the new registry and performs initial
   allocations.  This document proposes one particular registry
   structure with independent registries for each of the fields
   involved.  A companion document draft-bagnulo-ippm-new-registry
   explores an alternative structure with a single registry with
   multiple sub-registries.
