I just noticed that the IANA form page <http://www.iana.org/cgi-bin/usr-port-number.pl> still says:

> What SHORT name (14 CHARACTER MAXIMUM) do you want associated with this port number? (For example: sums)


This should be updated to say "15 CHARACTER MAXIMUM"

Also, the term "SHORT name" does not match our new terminology in RFC 6335. I fear that people may not understand that the "SHORT name" and the DNS SRV name (aka RFC 6335 "Service Name") are the same thing.

(Or is there a new updated IANA form page waiting in the wings to go live once RFC 6335 is published?)
