    (Since you asked...) I'm inclined to use the same approach I
suggested for draft-ali-ccamp-otn-signal-type-subregistry, i.e.,
Standards Action and Specification Required policies.  It's fairly
straight forward and flexible. I also know of no cases where
Experimental has actually been used by CCAMP or in GMPLS.  The recent
discussion came the closest and, as mentioned in Toronto, clearly isn't
the right answer.

Looking at
you'll see various policies have been used/suggested, including the
combination I mention.  Perhaps we, as a WG, should agree, on default
policy for the GMPLS registry...

Thank you for raising the topic.
