   Moving Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) IANA Registries to a New
                                Registry
               draft-ietf-mpls-moving-iana-registries-04

Abstract

   RFC 5586 generalized the applicability of the pseudowire Associated
   Channel Header (PW-ACH) into the Generic Associated Channel G-ACh.
   However, registries and allocations of G-ACh parameters had been
   distributed throughout different, sometimes unrelated, registries.
   This document coalesces these into a new "Generic Associated Channel
   (G-ACh) Parameters" registry under the "Multiprotocol Label Switching
   Architecture (MPLS)" heading.  This document updates RFC 5586.

   This document also updates RFC 6374, RFC 6428, RFC 6378, RFC 6427,
   RFC-ietf-mpls-gach-adv, and RFC-ietf-mpls-tp-ethernet-addressing.

Internet-Draft          Creating G-ACh registries           January 2014

1.  Introduction

   RFC 5586 generalized the PW-ACH into the G-ACh.  However, registries
   and allocations of G-ACh namespaces had been distributed throughout
   different registries.  This document coalesces these into a new
   "Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) Parameters" registry in the
   "Multiprotocol Label Switching Architecture (MPLS)" name space.  This
   reorganization achieves two purposes: it allocates the G-ACh
   registries in their natural place in the MPLS names space, and it is
   needed to get a single view of the G-ACh registries, to simplify
   future assignments, and to avoid potential conflicts.  This is an
   update to RFC RFC 5586 [RFC5586].

   Further, the "Pseudowire Associated Channel Types" registry is
