Hi Darshak,

Thanks for the submission; the IETF week has just ended, so it's possible that folks will bring this back to the fore.

I note that the document has a "TBD" for the mailing address of the designated contact.  That will need an update.  Second, you use the syntax:


to describe the structure.  You don't appear to include ABNF for each of the substructures, though; did you intend to describe them?

DT>> I’ll update the designated contact address shortly. The ABNF for {SCTEresource}:{ResourceSpecificString} will be in the SCTE specs. Do I need to provide it here or is it ok if I simply state that the specific tokens will be defined in relevant SCTE specs ?

You also cite the "SANN" as the intended numbering authority, but the citation is simply a repetition of the acronym expansion.  What's the actual status of this body?

DT>> I’m in the process of procuring the URL to the document and update it shortly.

Hi all,

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Enginners (SCTE) would like to register the “scte” URN namespace in the IANA registry located here:

Pursuant to the instructions provided in RFC 3406, Section 4.3, I am sending the request to the above address. An I-D using the template in Appendix A of RFC 3406 has been submitted to the IETF. The I-D requesting the URN registration and providing the relevant information is available here:

We would like the group to review the draft and provide any necessary comments/feedback.
