> To: draft-ietf-ianaplan-icg-response at, The IESG <iesg at>, ietf at
> Do not be alarmed.  I have reviewed this document as part of the security
> directorate’s ongoing effort to review all IETF documents being
> processed by the IESG.  These comments were written with the intent
> of improving security requirements and considerations in IETF drafts.
> Comments not addressed in last call may be included in AD reviews
> during the IESG review.  Document editors and WG chairs should treat
> these comments just like any other last call comments.
> Summary: No security or privacy issues that I can see, but I do have
> a couple of nits.
> 0) General:
> I guess it wasn’t clear to me that the response will take on the form of the
> RFC or if the text not proceeded by “>>>” in the main body will be returned
> in some of other form.
> 1) Sec 1:
> There’s a pointer to ICG’s charter and the RFP shouldn’t we also have a
> pointer to the NTIA announcement:

> 2) Abstract contains:
>   The IETF community is invited to
>   comment and propose changes to this document.
> I guess this makes it crystal clear that folks could comment on the draft,
> but this sentence should be struck before going to the RFC editor.
> 3) Sec I (section #s refer to RFP sections): Missing word
> Missing “the”?  r/on the
>   The IETF
>   community presently accesses the protocol parameter registries via
>   references based on domain name, and makes use of the term
>   "IANA" in the protocol parameter registry processes [RFC5226].
> 4) Sec I: missing “.” at the end of the sentence:
>>>> A description of any overlaps or interdependencies between your
>>>> IANA requirements and the functions required by other customer
>>>> communities
> 5) Sec I: Overlap
> I assume the overlap here is with the other two communities listed in
> this RFP (i.e., names & numbers) and not the IEEE or W3C?
> 6) Sec I: "RIR System"?
>      Through the IANA protocol
>      parameters registries, the IETF delegates unicast IP address and
>      AS number ranges to the RIR system [RFC7020],[RFC7249].
> I went and looked in RFCs 7020 and 7249 and could find no reference
> to an “RIR system” I found Internet Numbers Registry System was that
> what you’re referring to?
> 7) Sec I: Missing question/response?
> In addition to the four bullets there is also this paragraph in the RFP:
>   If your community relies on any other IANA service or activity
>   beyond the scope of the IANA functions contract, you may describe
>   them here. In this case please also describe how the service or
>   activity should be addressed by the transition plan.
> And because the intro of the RFP says:
>   The IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG) seeks
>   complete formal responses to this RFP through processes which are to
>   be convened …
> Don’t we need to include a response to this question even if the answer
> is “none” or “see above”?
> 8) Sec II.A: r/the/The & r/all/All
>   IETF Response: the protocol parameters registries.
>   IETF Response: all policy sources relating to the protocol parameters
>   registry are affected.
> 9) Sec IV: Missing question?
> The “Risks” paragraph in the RFP includes the following question:
>   Description of how long the proposals in Section III are expected to
>   take to complete, and any intermediate milestones that may occur
>   before they are completed.
> Does it need to be included along with the bullets in Sec IV?
> 10) Sec V: missing question/response:
> There are five bullets in sV this one is omitted:  
>    o The proposal must not replace the NTIA role with a government-led
>      or an inter-governmental organization solution.
> Should we say something about our proposal not replacing
> NTIA with a government-y organizational solution?  I mean I know it’s
> obvious to you and me, but maybe being explicit here is better.
> 11) Sec VI: add IETF LC?
> I assume you’re going to add a link to the IETF LC and maybe the ballots
> to the end of the list of actions.
> 12) s3 (IANA Considerations)
> r/is a response a request for/is a response to a request for
