Technical Summary:

   IEEE 802.1 has specified OAM facilities called Continuity Fault
   Management (CFM). CFM messages are structured with an Op-Code field
   and have provision for the inclusion of TLV (type, length, value)
   structured information. Subsequent to a request from the TRILL WG,
   IEEE 802.1 has allocated blocks of CFM Op-Codes and TLV Types to
   the IETF. This document specifies the IANA Consideration for the
   assignment of values from these blocks.

Working Group Summary:

   This is not a Working Group document. The IEEE 802.1 allocation
   supported by this document is to the IETF, to be used by various   
   WG's, not to any particular WG. Hence, it is inappropriate for 
   this draft to be a WG draft.

Document Quality:

   The document is short, simple, and of good quality. It has been
   reviewed by IANA, the sponsoring AD, and a four week IETF Last
   Call. It conforms to the IANA Considerations requested by IEEE
   802.1.
