I dunno what happened.
But, you are exactly right.
Who to blame? when in doubt? clearly, BLAME CANADA.

It wasn't until my third reading of:
  grasp-15, section 6,

that I saw that GRASP actually does create a _GRASP Objective Names Tables_.
I was going to complain that there was no registry created, but it just
didn't have it's own heading:

   GRASP Objective Names Table.  The values in this table are UTF-8
   strings which MUST NOT include a colon (":"), according to
   Section 2.10.1.  Future values MUST be assigned using the
   Specification Required policy defined by [RFC8126].

   To assist expert review of a new objective, the specification should
   include a precise description of the format of the new objective,
   with sufficient explanation of its semantics to allow independent
   implementations.  See Section 2.10.3 for more details.  If the new
   objective is similar in name or purpose to a previously registered
   objective, the specification should explain why a new objective is

I think that the text has to go in.
Warren needs to approve the change, and IANA needs to review, and then the
text needs to go in now or at AUTH48, depending upon where the RPC really is.

I have version -45 ready to post, diffs are at:

I think that this is non-constroversial, does not require a WG LC, and can
slide in at AUTH48, but as it required IANA review, it's better if it happens

It looks like the YANG is now 2-3 characters too long in places, so I've also
rewrapped that.  The base64 in the examples will also need to be reflowed
