I agree that yearly review of assigned ranges by IANA is excessive.  There's already a requirement for IANA to freeing up unrenewed registrations within 30 days.  A single review of the registry triggered by this document, followed by that renewal/freeing process, ought to suffice for the next few years.

Would be nice to include a "Changes from RFC 3171" section.

  The Gen-ART Review by Miguel Garcia on 19-Oct-2009 included some

  - Due to the nature of the draft, I think it makes sense to promote
    RFC 5226 to a normative reference.

  - Expand terms at the first occurrence. This includes:
    Section 1: SDP, SAP, GLOP, SSM
    Section 8: VMTP
    Section 9: ASN
    Section 9.2: RIR, AS, eGLOP

  - Section 9.2 contains two similar abbreviations: eGLOP and EGLOP.
    Those are probably the same and should be unified.

  - The document uses quite a few references to URLs. The RFC Editor
    does not like this approach because URLs often change with time. So,
    I would suggest to refer to the title of the web page instead. It
    might be possible that the RFC Editor accepts the addition of a
    reference to a URL (which should be valid for some time), but the
    main link should be done to the content, not to the URL. This

    Section 1: http://www.iana.org/numbers.html
    This page is already obsolete, and the URL redirects to
    http://www.iana.org/protocols/; I suggest to refer to the "IANA
    Protocol Registries [IANA-protocols]", and the link is in the
    reference [IANA-protocols].

    Section 11: http://www.iana.org/protocols/apply
    I suggest to refer to the "IANA Protocol Registration Forms
    [IANA-registration]", moving the link to the [IANA-registration]

  - There is no reference to [SDR], used in Section 7.

  - Reference to RFC 1190 is obsolete. RFC 1819 should be used instead.

  - Reference to RFC 2030 is obsolete. RFC 4330 should be used instead.
