                    draft-elris-hrpc-righttolife-00

Abstract

   This document proposes a new IANA registry of Guidance for Blocked
   Content.  Blocked Content is content which has no significant valid
   use and conflicts with the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" . 
   The format of the proposed registry is provided, and some initial
   categories; for example, human trafficking and 3d printed guns.

1  Introduction

   [RFC3552] provides guidance to protocol designers about both how to
   consider security as part of protocol design and how to inform
   readers of protocol specifications about security issues.  [RFC6973]
   provides guidelines for considering privacy in protocol design.
   [RFC3935] in Section 4 states "The Internet isn't value-neutral, and
   neither is the IETF."

   This document provides guidance to content providers on what content
   to block based on the right to life and safety.   This registry
