  Response to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG)
    Request for Proposals on the IANA Protocol Parameters Registries

Abstract

   The U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration
   (NTIA) solicited a request from the Internet Corporation for Assigned
   Names and Numbers (ICANN) to propose how the NTIA should end its
   oversight of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA)
   functions.  After broad consultations, ICANN in turn created the IANA
   Stewardship Transition Coordination Group.  That group solicited
   proposals for the three major IANA functions: names, numbers, and
   protocol parameters.  This document contains the IETF response to
   that solicitation for protocol parameters.  It was included in an
   aggregate response to the NTIA alongside those for names and
   numbering resources that are being developed by their respective
   operational communities.  A reference to that response may be found
   in the introduction, and additional correspondence is included in the
   Appendix.

1.  IETF Introduction

   In March of 2014, the U.S. National Telecommunications and
   Information Administration (NTIA) announced its intent to transition
   oversight of Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) functions
   [NTIA-Announce].  In that announcement, NTIA asked the Internet
   Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to establish a
   process to deliver a proposal for transition.  As part of that
   process, the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) was
   formed.  The charter for the ICG can be found in Appendix A.  The ICG
   in turn solicited proposals regarding post-transition arrangements
   from the names, numbers, and protocol parameters communities in order
