Reviewed by Spencer Dawkins, Gen-ART. Comment worth pulling into ballot: 5.2 - Given that the registry is starting with 8 values, and this is just from IEEE 802, I'm wondering if one byte (255 values) leaves enough headroom for the next 20 years. I guess it's BARELY big enough. Yeah, Seamoby is Experimental, but what if the experiment works? But John Loughney responded (on the gen-art list): Strong guidence from the AD & Thomas Narten suggested that this space be left small intentially to avoid potential over extension. However, if the experiment works, then the document will be reved as proposed standard with this fixed, if needed.

It might be helpful if section 12 (IANA Considerations) spelled out the TBD actions that are sprinkled throughout the document instead of just saying that "This entire document is about IANA considerations". It's easy to miss an action given the way the document is currently written.

> 2.0 Common IPv4 and IPv6 Allocations > > IANA SHALL assign SCTP port number TBD1 for use by experimental mobility > protocols such as Seamoby. See Section 5.2.1 of [CARD] for a description of resusing the port for multiple applications seems not so good. Why not just assign a port number for CARD and be done with it? > Specification Required and IESG Review as defined in RFC 2434. > IESG Review is not defined in 2434...
