     IANA has defined an "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the
     "Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling
     Parameters" registry. This draft proposes changes to OTN Signal
     Type subregistry to include Specification Required policies, as
     defined in [RFC5226].

     1. Introduction
        [RFC4328] and [RFC7139] provide the extensions to the
        Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) signaling to
        control the full set of OTN features including ODU0, ODU1, ODU2,
        ODU3, ODU4, ODU2e and ODUflex. However, it does not cover
        additional signal types mentioned in [G.Sup43] (ODU1e, ODU3e1,
        and ODU3e2). As ODU1e, ODU3e1, and ODU3e2 signal types are only
        defined in an ITU-T supplementary document, IANA cannot allocate
        values from the Standards Action registration policy defined in
        IANA maintains "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the "Generalized
        Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling Parameters"
        registry for the OTN signal defined in [RFC4328] and [RFC7139].
        However, this subregistry currently is defined to only use the
        Standards Action registration policy as defined by [RFC5226].
        This document extends "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to also
        support Specification Required policies, as defined in
                          Expires February 2015               [Page 2]

     2. IANA Considerations
        IANA maintains the an "OTN Signal Type" subregistry to the
        "Generalized  Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Signaling
        Parameters" registry. The registry currently is defined to use
        the Standards Action registration policy as defined by
        [RFC5226]. This document directs that both Standards Action and
        Specification Required policies, as defined in [RFC5226], be
        applied to this subregistry. When needed, the Designated Expert
        shall be identified by a CCAMP WG chair or, in the case the
        group is no longer active, by the IESG.
