Abstract

The "Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) Capability URNs" registry [RFC6241] was set up with a registration policy of "Standards Action" [RFC5226], allowing registrations only from Standards Track RFCs. This provided thorough review of the specifications that are requesting NETCONF Capability URNs. It has turned out to be desirable to allocate capability URNs for certain Experimental RFCs also, provided those specifications are also carefully reviewed. The existing registration policy is, therefore, unnecessarily strict, requiring exception handling by the IESG. This document changes that registration policy to "IETF Review", which also allows registrations from certain well-reviewed Experimental RFCs, or, for example, corrections to registry errors from Informational RFCs, with IETF review and consensus.
