Technical Summary

   This document updates RFC 5492 by making a change to the registration
   procedures for BGP Capability Codes.  Specifically, the range
   formerly designated "Reserved for Private Use" is divided into three
   new ranges, respectively designated as "First Come First Served",
   "Experimental Use" and "Reserved".

Working Group Summary

   This is an administrative document, so it didn't spark too much interest, 
   but there was no opposition. 

Document Quality

   This document just updates a registry.
