This document went through a relevant long document development
period (15 months for individual document period, 30 month for WG

Huawei has expressed interest in implementation.
There is a prototype implementation at:
Toerless Eckert is the document shepherd.
Terry Manderson is the responsible AD.
The IANA is requested to add two names to GRASP Objective Names Table
registry defined by [I-D.ietf-anima-grasp] (registry already crated).
"PrefixManager" and "PrefixManager.Params". I did review/discuss these
names during shepherd review. I think these allocations establish

use a common prefix.
