Just to be clear: the scope of my remarks was intended to be primarily on the IETF, as this is the IAB's list and I'm trying to keep to that focus. 

Is your assertion that "everyone goes running to NTIA" and that "it happens all the time" intended to describe the situation regarding the IETF and the IANA protocol parameter registries?

If so, I'm curious how people directly involved in the IETF's relationship with IANA will respond. As I am not one of those people, I'll simply confess to being deeply surprised by this assertion if it's intended to include the IETF and the protocol parameter registries for which it provides direction to IANA.
