Deborah, working group,

The working group chairs have received a request for early allocation
for code point defined in draft-ietf-mpls-rsvp-shared-labels (see the
mail below.

In draft-ietf-mpls-rsvp-shared-labels code points are defined in three
subsections (14.1, 14.2 and 14.3) to the IANA considerations section.

At the moment we want to go ahead and make the early allocations for
the code points in section 14.1 and 14.2.

For section 14.3 we don't see that it is possible to make early
allocations, since it involves creating a new registry.

We will give the working group until January 8 to comment on this

After the time for comments is done, we will formerly request the early
allocations from our AD.


This is sent to you for information.

mpls wg co-chair
