Just one small thing about the IANA Considerations: The reference to "section 4.1 of RFC 4121" makes it clear, but it would be useful if one detail of the registry in 7.2 were specified here... the "ID" field is two octets, specified in hex in big-endian order.  Having that bit here will make it easier for IANA to see that IDs have been specified correctly, without their having to go look in RFC 4121.
