    I object on process grounds at a minimum and call for its "last calls" 
    to be revoked by the sponsoring AD and WG chair as follows:
    1) this doc went to "IETF last call" (according to the doc tracker) 
    without ever being announced on the IETF-wide last call list
    2) this doc went to "last call" both there and (via this announcement) 
    here without ever being posted for open discussion on any IETF list
         - it is my understanding that first call != last call
    3) this doc falls clearly within the purview of TSVWG, as it *should* be 
    handled similar to RFCs 6335 and 7605; it should have been submitted for 
    WG consideration FIRST - before being posted even for LC.
    The fact that this doc is being rushed through as an individual 
    submission by the transport AD as sponsored by another AD of the IESG is 
    highly suspicious and IMO inappropriate.
    Regarding content, I've already provided feedback, including the above, 
    that has been largely ignored since mid-Dec privately by author and IESG 
    ADs alike.
    To repeat: the authors need to DO THEIR HOMEWORK as follows:
    - correct the errors
         - RFC 6335 defines reassignment and the appeals process, in 
    contrast to the claims of this doc, including when a party is no longer 
    reachable (the IESG or IAB appeal would decide how to proceed)
         - RFC 6335 also explains the process for deassignment, which is 
    much more involved than described here
         - if this doc is intended to update RFC 6335, it should say so AND 
    BE A TSVWG adopted item, not merely an individual submission
    - show an empirical need for dealing with standards-track ports in bulk 
    rather than on a per-issue basis
         - especially given at least some of the issues in this doc, such as 
    "orphaned" ports (whose contact is no longer reachable), represent an 
    ongoing problem that cannot be corrected  by a single pass
    - provide a COMPLETE list of the impacted standards-track ports not 
    already assigned to the IESG, *including* those in the user ports space 
    (not merely system, which RFC 7605 already suggests not treating as 
    privileged anyway)
    - NOT attempt to "reclaim unused" system ports, for several reasons:
         a) see the hazards of deassignment per RFC 6335
         b) see the recommendation to not treat system ports as privileged 
    and thus there would be no utility in focusing on reclaiming entries 
    from that range
    - limit the scope of this doc to those such ports, rather than implying 
    the IESG will be "reclaiming" the entire system ports space (including 
    rewriting the title and abstract)
    - NOT attempt to subvert the appeals process for port reassignment as 
    per RFC6335
    - NOT attempt to subvert the WG process by submitting this as "individual"
