 The "QUIC Transport Parameters" registry governs a 16-bit space.  This space is
-split into two spaces that are governed by different policies.  Values with the
-first byte in the range 0x00 to 0xfe (in hexadecimal) are assigned via the
-Specification Required policy {{!RFC8126}}.  Values with the first byte 0xff are
-reserved for Private Use {{!RFC8126}}.
+split into three spaces that are governed by different policies.  Values between
+0x0000 and 0x003f (in hexadecimal) are assigned via the Standards Action or IESG
