(I cleared my discuss. Alexey pointed out that the registration policies for
unassigned ranges are explicitly mentioned in the table itself. Apologies, I
missed that.)

-General:  When you use the word "application", is a person skilled in MPLS
automatically going to think in terms of the sort of "applications" listed
here? If not, it would be good to have a paragraph early in the introduction
that describes what you mean by "applications". As an application-layer person,
I tend to think of it in terms of application-layer applications. Am I correct
to assume that it would not make sense to register, for example, HTTP in the
the LDP Targeted Application Identifier registry?

- 1.1: I noticed a number instances of at least "may" in lower case. If your
intent is that lower case words not be treated as keywords, please consider
using the new boilerplate from RFC 8174


-1, first paragraph: "LDP uses extended discovery mechanism..."
Missing article before "discovery".

-2.2, paragraph 4 and 5, "... a maximum value, as 0xffff.": should "as" be
"such as"?

-2.2, paragraphs 6 and 7: the "it" in the opening sentence of each paragraph
has an unclear antecedent.
