My general comments:

In IETF response there is no information about its date or the date of
respond. IMHO the date is very important for a such info-document.

AB> There is no reference for the following paragraph as what are the
current arrangements exactly;

IANA protocol parameters registry updates will continue to function
   day-to-day, as they have been doing for the last decade or more.  The
   IETF community is very satisfied with the current arrangement with


  AB> In London 89 was there a meeting for WG or for community? In
paragraph below, There is no reference to community discussions or minutes
of meeting, just a chair discuss !!!!

So if the IETF community discussed that can mean a WG, so we should specify
its name. See below paragraph;

In developing our response we have been mindful of the following
   points that the IETF community has discussed over the last year
   [ProtoParamEvo14].  Discussions during the IETF 89 meeting in London
   led to the following guiding principles for IAB efforts that impact
   IANA protocol parameter registries.  These principles must be taken
   together; their order is not significant.


In general, this draft needs to be careful with references and point to the
community discussions and minutes, and must reference the WG that discussed
the draft.
