registrations in URI.ARPA to be from the IETF URI Tree.  This document
will be published as a Best Current Practice, as it updates BCP 35.

Working Group Summary and Document Quality

The draft was Dispatched at IETF 108: the decision was for it to be
AD-sponsored, and Barry Leiba agreed to sponsor it.  The conversation
in Dispatch was broadly supportive, but there was general agreement
that Dispatch should not make it a working group document.
The draft is very brief and to the point.

The responsible Area Director is Barry Leiba.
