              Updates to the IS-IS TLV Codepoints Registry

Abstract

   This document recommends some editorial changes to the IANA "IS-IS
   TLV Codepoints" registry to more accurately document the state of the
   protocol.  It also sets out new guidelines for Designated Experts to
   apply when reviewing allocations from the registry.

1.  Introduction

   The "IS-IS TLV Codepoints" registry was created by [RFC3563] and
   extended by [RFC6233].  The assignment policy for the registry is
   "Expert Review" as defined in [RFC5226].  As documents related to
   IS-IS are developed, the codepoints required for the protocol
   extensions are reviewed by the Designated Experts and added to the
   IANA-managed registry.  As these documents are published as RFCs, the
   registries are updated to reference the relevant RFC.

   In the case of TLVs supporting prefix advertisement, currently
   separate sub-TLV registries are maintained for each TLV.  These
   registries need to be combined into a common sub-TLV registry similar
   to what has been done for neighbor advertisement TLVs.

   In some cases, there is a need to allocate codepoints defined in
   Internet-Drafts (I-Ds) that seem likely to eventually gain Working
   Group approval, without waiting for those I-Ds to be published as
   RFCs.  This can be achieved using Expert Review, and this document
