Technical Summary

   RFC 5586 generalized the applicability of the pseudowire Associated
   Channel Header (PW-ACH) into the Generic Associated Channel G-Ach.
   However, registries and allocations of G-ACh parameters had been
   distributed throughout different, sometimes unrelated, registries.
   This document coalesces these into a new "Generic Associated Channel
   (G-ACh)" registry under the "Multiprotocol Label Switching
   Architecture (MPLS)" heading.  This document updates RFC 5586.
   This document also updates RFC 6374, RFC 6428, RFC 6378, RFC 6427,
   RFC-ietf-mpls-gach-adv, and RFC-ietf-mpls-tp-ethernet-addressing.

Working Group Summary

   There is solid WG consensus to progress this document. 

Document Quality

   This document has been carefully reviewed by the MPLS WG. It does not
   define a protocol and thus cannot be implemented, other than by creating
   a well organized IANA registry. 

Personnel

   Ross Callon is the Document Shepherd. 
   Adrian Farrel is the Responsible Area Director.
