1.  Introduction

   [RFC5838] defined the "OSPFv3 Instance ID Address Family Values"
   registry for the purpose of mapping OSPFv3 Instance IDs to different
   address families.  The following table lists the value ranges as
   currently allocated.

   +---------------------------+-------------------+-------------------+
   | Instance ID Range         | Description       | Assignment Policy |
   +---------------------------+-------------------+-------------------+
   | Instance ID # 0 - # 31    | IPv6 unicast AF   | Already Assigned  |
   | Instance ID # 32 - # 63   | IPv6 multicast AF | Already Assigned  |
   | Instance ID # 64 - # 95   | IPv4 unicast AF   | Already Assigned  |
   | Instance ID # 96 - # 127  | IPv4 multicast AF | Already Assigned  |
   | Instance ID # 128 - # 255 | Unassigned        | Standards Action  |
   +---------------------------+-------------------+-------------------+

   In some networks additional OSPFv3 instances may be required to
   operationally identify specific applications.  For example,
   [I-D.ietf-ospf-ipv4-embedded-ipv6-routing] describes an application
   in which IPv4-embedded IPv6 addresses are used to transport IPv4
   packets over an IPv6 network.  While the IPv4-embedded IPv6 addresses
   do in fact represent IPv6 destinations, it would be operationally
   benefitial to be able to easily identify the the specific application
   by having a separate space to do so.

2.  OSPFv3 Instance ID Address Family Values Registry Update

   The IANA "OSPFv3 Instance ID Address Family Values" registry must be
   updated as follows:
