1.  Introduction

   When RFC 8029 [RFC8029] was published it contained among other things
   updates to the "Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Label Switched
   Paths (LSPs) Ping Parameters" IANA name space [IANA-LSP-PING].

   RFC 8611 [RFC8611] updated the LSP Ping IANA registries to match RFC
   8029, but the registrations can be further clarified and their
   definitions more precise.

   This document updates RFC 8029 [[RFC8029] and RFC 8611 [RFC8611] by
   updating two groups of registries.

   First the registries for Message Types [IANA-MT], Reply Modes
   [IANA-RM] and Return Codes [IANA-RC].  The changes to these
   registries are minor.

   Second, this document updates the TLV and sub-TLV registries.

   o  TLVs [IANA-TLV-reg]
