The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) base specification, [RFC6830], defines a set of primitives that are identified with a packet type code. Several extensions have been proposed to add more LISP functionalities. For example, new message types are proposed in [LISP-DDT], [LISP-MN-EXT], [LISP-BULK], [NAT-LISP], or [LISP-SUBSCRIBE]. It is expected that additional LISP extensions will be proposed in the future.

Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP): Shared Extension Message & IANA Registry for Packet Type Allocations
This document specifies a Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) shared message type for defining future extensions and conducting experiments without consuming a LISP packet type codepoint for each extension. It also defines a registry for LISP Packet Type allocations, thus updating RFC 6830.
