Technical Summary This document tightens up the IANA considerations for the PPP number spaces. Specifically, it changes many First-Come-First-Served spaces to require RFC publication, in order to get WG and IESG review prior to number assignment. Working Group Summary There was support in the PPPEXT WG for these changes to the IANA Considerations for PPP numbers. Indeed, the document resulted from a thread discussing an individual Internet-Draft that proposed a new PPP LCP option that the WG PPP was opposed to. Discussion of that document pointed out that many PPP code points could be obtained from IANA without any review, prompting this document. Protocol Quality This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Thomas Narten.
