This document renames and makes minor changes to some IANA registries that derive from RFC 5444.
During progress of another draft (draft-ietf-manet-olsrv2-multitopology) issues with current registry
naming practices were illustrated; specifically having different names for different TLV type extensions
was not allowed. If this naming was enforced certain TLV types would share a "name" but otherwise be
completely divergent in meaning. This draft reorganizes the registry naming rules and does not change
any protocol functionality.
Working Group Summary
This work was regarded as a technical change, requested by the AD (Adrian Farrel). There was no particular
interest in the draft (for or against), beyond cleaning up the registry and being necessary to progress draft
The document clearly states it's purpose, to change naming of IANA registries for future assignments and
to provide new versions of IANA registries to reflect these rules. It does this clearly and with detail.
Justin Dean (email@example.com) is the document shepherd.
Alvaro Retana (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the responsible AD.
Joe Macker and Stan Ratliff are the designated experts for the affected registries.
