COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,

Thank you for this document.

My first observation on this document is that it does not really explain why
this change is being made.  I think that it would be helpful  for readers if
the introduction briefly explained why the allocation policy is being changed.

However, I have the same concern that Martin raised, i.e., this uses an IANA
"Expert Review" classification where the instructions to follow are broadly
"IETF Review" or "Standards Action", and I don't understand why one of those
classifications isn't being used instead.

Section 4.11 of RFC8216 explains that the use of well-known policies aids
community experience and wide understanding, and that the policies are in
increasing order of strictness.  But the use of "Expert Review" does not match
what I would naturally expect that IANA policy to mean.

Regards,
Rob
