Are you asking for an early allocation of this code point?

The document has been through IETF last call and with a few edits will be ready
for processing by the IESG. After IESG approval, the IANA will make a
provisional allocation of a code point that will be confirmed on publication of
the RFC. The IANA is *likely* to allocate the next available value, but not if
another I-D gets there first :-)

Unless there is a reason for a rush, I suggest that we wait for normal process.
Constructive discussion of the remaining issues with this draft should enable
that to complete quickly.
