                BGP Extended Community Registries Update
                 draft-ietf-idr-bgp-ext-com-registry-00

Abstract

   This document updates several BGP Extended Community registries in
   order to replace the "Experimental Use" registration procedure in
   some entries, since their use is clearly not experimental and thus
   misleading.

   This document updates RFC7153.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC7153] reorganizes the IANA registries for the type values and
   sub-type values of the BGP Extended Communities attribute.  As a
   result the IANA maintained registry entitled "BGP Transitive Extended
   Community Types" includes a range of Type Values (0x80-0x8F) with
   Experimental Use registration procedure.  Out of this experimental
   range the types 0x80, 0x81, 0x82 have been assigned via [RFC5575] and
   [RFC7674].  The primary use for those types and sub-type registries
   is non experimental.

   Section 2 of this document requests the registry cleanup to reflect
   the actual use of those code-points (removing "Experimental Use" from
   the sub-type registry names) and changes the registration procedure
   of the types 0x80, 0x81, 0x82 to first come first serve.

2.  IANA Considerations

2.1.  Registry: BGP Transitive Extended Community Types

   IANA maintains a registry entitled "BGP Transitive Extended Community
   Types".  IANA is requested to update the Name of the Type Values
   according to Table 1 and append a reference to this document to the
   existing references.
