RFC 5586 generalized the PW-ACH into the G-ACh. However, registries and allocations of G-ACh namespaces had been distributed throughout different registries. This document coalesces these into a new "Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) Parameters" registry in the "Multiprotocol Label Switching Architecture (MPLS)" name space. This reorganization achieves two purposes: it allocates the G-ACh registries in their natural place in the MPLS names space, and it provides a single view of the G-ACh registries, to simplify future assignments and avoid potential conflicts. This is an update to RFC 5586 [RFC5586].

        Moving Generic Associated Channel (G-ACh) IANA Registries                            to a New Registry


   RFC 5586 generalized the applicability of the pseudowire Associated    Channel Header (PW-ACH) into the Generic Associated Channel G-ACh.    However, registries and allocations of G-ACh parameters had been    distributed throughout different, sometimes unrelated, registries.    This document coalesces these into a new "Generic Associated Channel    (G-ACh) Parameters" registry under the "Multiprotocol Label Switching    Architecture (MPLS)" heading.  This document updates RFC 5586.

   This document also updates RFCs 6374, 6378, 6427, and 6428.
