Following up on my alternative approach to revising RFC 2141, I have
decided to submit a similar I-D for RFC 3406.

One could argue, as Leslie Daigle did to me recently, that we don't
absolutely need to revise RFC 3406. I am sympathetic to that argument.
However, based on my work advising namespace registrants over the past
few years, I found that they often were confused about the process.
Thus in my alternative approach to revising RFC 3406 I have rearranged
the content a bit and have clarified and streamlined the text here and
there. IMHO the only truly substantive change is removal of experimental
namespaces, in accordance with the recommendations of RFC 6648.

Feedback is welcome.
