  Moving Generic Associated Channel  (G-ACh) IANA registries to a new
                                registry
               draft-lcap-mpls-moving-iana-registries-00

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)" registry under the "Multiprotocol Label Switching
   Architecture (MPLS)" heading.  This is an update to RFC 5586
   [RFC5586].

   This document also updates RFC 6374, RFC 6428, RFC 6378, RFC 6427,
   RFC-ietf-mpls-gach-adv-08, and
   RFC-ietf-mpls-tp-ethernet-addressing-08.
