Am I correct in understanding:

  * This is the only document that talks about replacing the existing registry.

  * The existing IANA registry will be replaced in situ.

If, so then:

  * Why does the specification link to:


    This page doesn't exist.

    The changelog suggest that this should have been removed:

      o  Removed specific location for the registry, since IANA seems to
         have its own ideas about that.

    Instead of removing the location, should IANA sort out the existing mess?

  * Why does the specification omit details available in the current registry.

    The up relation in the specification is currently missing:

      - Expected Display Characteristics

      - Security Considerations

      - Reference

      - Registration Date

    This effects almost every other relation in the specification.

  * Why does the specification add the specification requirement? The previous
    relations added without specification seem quite useful. Do we really want
    to prevent relations like that being added?
