in a discussion in the yang-doctors mailing list, Acee noted that IANA probably
hasn't yet implemented a procedure for updating YANG modules corresponding to
IANA registries (such a procedure is specified, e.g., in the IANA Considerations
section of RFC 7224). It indeed seems to be the case - for example, a few new
interface types have been added recently to


but the module iana-if-type only exists in revision 2014-05-08.

A part of the problem may be that there is AFAIK no authoritative repository for
YANG modules where IANA could put the new revisions.
