Internet-Draft        Reclassifying RIR Guidelines      January 11, 2013


1.  Introduction

   RFC 2050 [BCP12] describes the registry system for the distribution
   of globally unique Internet address space and registry operations.
   It also describes the rules and guidelines governing the distribution
   of this address space.  RFC 2050 discusses about policy issues which
   are outside the scope of the IETF.  RFC 2860 [RFC2860] mentions the
   assignments of IP address blocks which are within the scope of the
   IETF.

   BCP 12 [BCP12] is no longer an accurate representation of the current
   practice as it has been overcome by events.  The role of the IETF is
   limited to providing guidance about IP architectural and operational
   considerations.  This document reclassifies RFC 2050 [BCP12] as
   Historic.  It also reclassifies RFC 1366 [RFC1366] and RFC 1466
   [RFC1466] as Historic.

2. Security Considerations

   The reclassification of RFCs about Internet Registry Allocation
   Guidelines is a procedural matter.  It does not affect the security
   of the Internet.

3. IANA Considerations

   This document does not request any action from IANA.
