The IESG has received a request from the Domain Name System Operations WG
(dnsop) to consider the following document: - 'DNS Scoped Data Through
"Underscore" Naming of Attribute Leaves'
  <draft-ietf-dnsop-attrleaf-13.txt> as Best Current Practice

PLEASE NOTE: The draft-ietf-dnsop-attrleaf-fix and 
draft-ietf-dnsop-attrleaf documents are very closely related. Please
read **both** of them when commenting.

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2018-09-25. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   Formally, any DNS resource record may occur under any domain name.
   However some services have defined an operational convention, which
   applies to DNS leaf nodes that are under a DNS branch having one or
   more reserved node names, each beginning with an _underscore.  The
   underscored naming construct defines a semantic scope for DNS record
   types that are associated with the parent domain, above the
   underscored branch.  This specification explores the nature of this
   DNS usage and defines the "DNS Global Underscore Scoped Entry
   Registry" with IANA.  The purpose of the Underscore registry is to
   avoid collisions resulting from the use of the same underscore-based
   name, for different services.
