1.  Introduction

   Table 1 shows the policy for registration of sub-services of the
   service URN with the 'sos' service type, as defined in section 4.2.
   of RFC 5031 [RFC5031].

   +-------------------------------------------------------------------+
   | The 'sos' service type describes emergency services requiring an  |
   | immediate response, typically offered by various branches of the  |
   | government or other public institutions.  Additional sub-services |
   | can be added after expert review and must be of general public    |
   | interest and have a similar emergency nature.  The expert is      |
   | designated by the ECRIT working group, its successor, or, in      |
   | their absence, the IESG.  The expert review should only approve   |
   | emergency services that are offered widely and in different       |
   | countries, with approximately the same caller expectation in      |
   | terms of services rendered.  The 'sos' service is not meant to    |
   | invoke general government, public information, counseling, or     |
   | social services.                                                  |

   Some existing emergency services are, at least initially, offered in
   one country only.  Examples are the "Reporting spies" emergency
   service offered in South Korea and the "GAULA (anti-kidnapping)"
   emergency service offered in Colombia according to http://
   en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_telephone_number.  Future emergency
   service might also initially be introduced in one country only.
