This document provides instructions to IANA for the creation of a registry for PIM message types. It specifies initial content of the registry based on existing RFCs specifying PIM message types. It also specifies a procedure for registering new types. In addition to this, one message type is reserved, and may be used for a future extension of the message type space.
