[Med] These codes are already in the registry. This I-D is just echoing what is recorded in the current authoritative registry. 
If one of these codes is relaxed, the YANG module will be updated by IANA to reflect that. 

I do think that draft-thaler-iftype-reg is the right place to include a recommendation to encourage tunnel protocol designers to register their tunnel types rather than to reuse the generic UDP type.

[Med] That is the best reference we have for UDP. It is certainly better than 4087.
