Technical Summary The registration policy for the NETCONF Capability URNs registry, set up by RFC 6241, has turned out to be unnecessarily strict. This document changes that registration policy to "IETF Review", allowing registrations from Experimental or Informational RFCs, in addition to Standards Track RFCs. This document is proposed as a BCP, which is suitable for an IANA registration policy update. Review and Consensus This document was prompted by IESG review of an Experimental document that asked the IESG for an exception to the registry's policy for new registrations. The result of discussion of that request was to recommend that the policy be changed. This document makes that change. The document has been discussed and reviewed in the NETCONF WG, mentioned both during the IETF 94 and over the mailing list. There was support for the change, and not a single voice against. Personnel Barry Leiba is the Document Shepherd. Benoît Claise is the responsible Area Director.
