Hi, all,

I disagree; Sec 8.4 allows for IANA-initiated deassignment. The deassignment procedures there and in Sec 8.3 make it clear that there’s not much point in focusing on cases when the assignee can’t be contacted (for whatever reason). 

Further, sec 7.9 of RFC 7605 underscores a point made throughout RFC 6335 - that port assignments aren’t intended to be changed. So the lack of such a contact isn’t really an issue except in very rare cases (for which the exception processes in RFC 6335 are already sufficient).

Joe
