Working Group, authors,

I had a quick look at  draft-ietf-mpls-spring-lsp-ping-02, I have a few
small nits and questions for the authors.

1. FEC is a well know abbreviation in MPLS context, but it is not 
well-know in wider IETF context. It needs to be expanded at first

2. We have early allocation for this document, can you place the 
following not in the IANA section in section 10.1.

"Note to the RFC Editor (please remove before publication): IANA has
  made early allocation for sub-type 34, 35 and 35. The early allocation
  expires 2017-09-15."

And then we create a "#Protocol" sub-registry in  "Multi-Protocol Label
Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) Ping Parameters" We will 
need to define allocation policies and code point range. IMHO the policy
should be "Standards Action" and the code range 0-255.

And a last question, should BGP-LS be in that registry?
