I'll limit what should be an extensive and elaborate apology to just 
this: I'm sorry for the year of inactivity.

The -03 version should provide some useful substance of progress.

I've gone over last summer's comments and the -03 version should reflect 
what the wg agreed to.  Basically, it has been significantly 
streamlined, essentially to reflect a clean-sheet model of the world. 
That is, it doesn't deal with the ugliness that SRV, et al, created.  It 
merely establishes the two registries we need, long term, and populates 
them.  This document should have continuing utility.

-03 defines two registries, 'global' and 'second-level'.  I'm suspicious 
of how short the global one is, though it does make sense.

As noted in the document, absent major concerns with the substance of 
the document, please send me or the list s/old/new/ types of change 
suggestions, and if the change is for a reference, I'd love the 
suggestion to be <reference> xml...

A second document will attempt to fix up the uglinesses in some existing 
documents, to get them to align with a world that has these registries. 
It should be viewed as a transitional document, though we all know how 
glacial 'transitions' are in the Internet...

Deciding how to pursue that reasonably has been the effort.  The changes 
this 'fixes' document defines will be to documentation, but not to 
existing operation.  Existing uses in the field will be preserved.

Here's the approach I'm taking:

1. Simple underscore usage

    For many/most specifications that use underscore naming, the text 
merely says to use it.  They are straightforward.

    These specifications need to be listed in this document, explicitly, 
so that later updates to them will know to deal with the revisions 
called for by this document.

    But this document doesn't really need s/old/new kinds of precise 
detail for them. Rather than provide precise language for changing each 
of these, I propose to provide some generic text, and generic IANA 
Considerations.  This will permit this Fixes document to be cited as 
Updating those RFCs.

2. SRV and URI

    These need more detailed text, very much in the s/old/new style.

    The current text in them does a use-by-reference of existing tables 
defined for other purposes.  The Update text will, instead, specify a 
requirement for adding entries in the Global or Common Second-Level
