So IETF LC is done for this and I think my comment below
and the IANA considerations were the only things that came up.

Could the authors please handle my comment below (and check
I-D nits [1] as well which has a couple of things you may
as well handle at the same time).

For the IANA considerations, IANA asked what to do about the
existing registries in 5296 and I at least didn't know. The
IESG (I asked) felt that best would be to repeat the definition
here and ask IANA to make 5296bis be the reference for those
registries. (See some text by Barry Leiba below that makes
this clear.) If the authors/WG/chairs are ok with that the
can you do it? If you want to do something else, please tell
me what, and I'll do a quick check with the IESG that that'll
not cause a bunch of discusses.

Please post a new version after Monday and if it sorts all the
above, I'll put it on the following telechat agenda.



Barry's best bet for basically-the-same registries in bis RFCs:

Right, that's what we've done in the past.  If the original document
also created initial entries, and the definitions of those entries are
now in the bis document, in addition to changing the registry to point
to the bis document it's often useful to also list, in IANA
Considerations, what those entries are.  Something like this:
RFC 7777:
IANA is asked to create the Frobozz Magic Registry, using the
"Specification Required" registration policy [BCP26].  IANA should
please register the following initial entries in that registry:

    Name       Reference                       Status
    plover       RFC 7777, section 3.2    active
    plugh        RFC 7777, section 3.5    active
    xyzzy        RFC 7777, section 3.6    active
IANA is asked to update the Frobozz Magic Registry, which uses the
"Specification Required" registration policy [BCP26], to refer to this
RFC.  IANA should please also update the following entries in that

    Name       Reference                       Status
    plover       7777bis, section 3.2        active
    plugh        7777bis, section 3.6        active
    xyzzy        7777bis, section 3.9        active

IANA is asked to add a new entry to the Frobozz Magic Registry, as follows:

    Name       Reference                       Status
    pirate        7777bis, section 3.8        active
