The IESG is considering the situation with IANA allocation of the RSVP
FLOWSPEC and SENDER_TSPEC C-Types for ietf-ccamp-gmpls-sonet-sdh that
has been recently approved by the IESG for publication as an RFC.
While the long-term measures to prevent similar situations in future
are being discussed, the issue at hand needs to be quickly resolved.
The proposed solution is to change the assignment of the above C-Types
from value 3 (currently assigned by IANA) to 4, and mark value 3 as
The IESG would like to solicit comments on the proposed solution from
the community. More details are given below. Please send your comments
by January 22nd, 2004.
Description of the situation with IANA assignments for
1. After the approval of the document by the IESG, an IANA action has
been performed for the document, in which IANA correctly picked the
next available C-Type value (3) in the FLOWSPEC and SENDER_TSPEC
ranges and assigned it to the document.
2. However, the CCAMP WG has been informed that value 3 is being used
by implementations of an another (expired) Internet draft that
also picked next available value in the same ranges. Because the
draft never progressed, these values have never been formally
allocated by IANA within the RSVP registry.
3. Because implementations of the expired Internet draft have been
deployed, assigning value 3 to ietf-ccamp-gmpls-sonet-sdh would
create interoperability problems.
4. An implementation survey performed in the CCAMP WG showed that
most early implementations of ietf-ccamp-gmpls-sonet-sdh use
value 4, and those few that use the IANA-assigned value 3 would
be willing to change it to 4 to avoid interoperability problems.
