Re: [sig-policy] prop-061-v001: 32-bit ASNs for documentation purposes
I have to agree with David Woodgate here that procedurally such reservations
in the IANA AS number registry are correctly actions taken as standards actions.
In the IPv6 case the action was only taken upon the publication of RFC3849
and IANA following the instructions as documented in the IANA considerations
of that RFC.
So APNIC can decide to adopt this as policy but that will not mean anything
in terms of an action recorded in IANA's AS Number registry. The required
action is that of a standards action undertaken by the IETF. So why not head
straight to the IETF in the first place, using RFC 3849 as a template?

I believe that this proposal is out of scope for APNIC, in that, as
discussed at APNIC 25, APNIC does not have the authority to reserve
public resources for regional shared use.
All other identification of public resources for documentation
purposes has been achieved through IETF RFCs. I therefore suggest
that this request should also be taken to the IETF for consideration.
