Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document creates a new IANA registry for tracking cost modes
   supported by the Application-Layer Traffic Optimization (ALTO)
   protocol.  Also, this document relaxes a constraint that was imposed
   by the ALTO specification on allowed cost mode values.

   This document updates RFC 7285.

Working Group Summary

   This document is intended to fix a discrepancy with recent
   extensions that create new values for a field that did not
   have an IANA registry. This discrepancy was discovered
   during IESG review of that extension, and progressed rapidly
   and uncontroversially through the WG.

Document Quality

   This is an IANA action, so implementation status is not
   applicable.

Personnel

   The shepherd is Kai Gao. The AD is Martin Duke. The registry
   policy is IETF Review, so no Designated Expert is needed.
