Sections 8.1 through 8.5 all create registries with "Specification Required"
rules.  RFC 8126 says this about "Specification Required":

   As with Expert Review (Section 4.5), clear guidance to the designated
   expert should be provided when defining the registry, and thorough
   understanding of Section 5 is important.

Only Section 8.5 includes any such guidance.  Is none needed for the other
four?  Also, I'm having trouble understanding the advice that Section 8.5 does
give.

COMMENT:

I concur with John; this was generally well-done and easy to understand.  Nice
work.  A couple of suggestions:

In Section 6.1 has:

   E: ETR-Cant-Sign bit.  This bit is set to 1 to signal ...

I think you mean "If this bit is set to 1, it signals ..." or something
similar.  Taken literally, the current text means you always set it to 1, but I
don't think that's what you meant to say.

I think the fifth paragraph of Section 6.4 is missing a period or something.  I
found it hard to parse toward the end.
