Technical Summary

'Expert Review for IODEF Extensions in IANA XML Registry' (draft-ietf-mile-iodef-xmlreg) specifies restrictions on additions to the subset of the IANA XML Namespace and Schema registries, to require Expert Review for extensions to the Incident Object Description Exchange Format (IODEF).  IODEF is specified in RFC5070.

Working Group Summary

The document requires and expert review on IODEF extensions, very straightforward from the WG perspective.

Document Quality

Yes, there are several implementations of RFC5070 and extensions.  This document does not specify anything that requires implementation, just requires an expert review on any new extensions.

Please note that this document is assigning an *additional* expert.  There's no expectation that this expert will be an XML expert.  This will mean there are two designated experts: one for the XML schema and one for the IODEF.  We'll need to somehow clearly identify this in the registry.
