Note to RFC Editor
 
  In Section 1, change "proposed solutions for comments"
  to "proposed solutions".

  Change the contents of the IANA considerations section
  to the following:

   This section provides some guidelines for IANA to consider when
   adding references to a CableLabs specification in its registries.

   CableLabs maintains current and archived specification repositories.
   When a specification is updated, a copy of the previous version is
   moved to the archived repository.

   There is no stable URL for a particular specification, at least
   not before it has been superseded by an updated version
   and moved to the archived repository. As a result, IANA
   should point to the name of the specification
   along with the URLs for both the current and archive
   repositories when referencing a CableLabs specification.
   The repository URLs depend on the area of specification.
   For instance,

   o  For a DOCSIS or cable modem related specification, the
       current specifications repository is at
       http://www.cablemodem.com/specifications/ and
       archived repository is at
       http://www.cablelabs.com/specifications/archives/ ;

   o  For a PacketCable specification, the current specifications
       repository is at http://www.packetcable.com/specifications/
       and archived repository is at
       http://www.cablelabs.com/specifications/archives/
