This is a fine document and I support its publication. However I have a
small set of issues that I would like to discuss first.

Are non ASCII names needed? (This is a protocol element, not a human
readable string, so non ASCII is not needed). Are ASCII spaces allowed in
names? More generally: what do you call printable character?


In Section 6.1: suggestion to first describe IANA registration policy,
then describe restrictions on registered names. Otherwise the current
text doesn't flow well.

I am also agreeing with Stephen's DISCUSS.
