[RFC4379] and [RFC6424] created name spaces for MPLS LSP Ping. However, those RFCs did not create the corresponding IANA registries for DS Flags, Multipath Types, Pad TLVs, and Interface and Label Stack Address Types.

                 IANA Registries for LSP Ping Code Points


   RFCs 4379 and 6424 created name spaces for Multi-Protocol Label    Switching (MPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP) Ping.  However, those RFCs    did not create the corresponding IANA registries for Downstream    Mapping object Flags (DS Flags), Multipath Types, Pad TLVs, and    Interface and Label Stack Address Types.

   There is now a need to make further code point allocations from these    name spaces.  This document updates RFCs 4379 and 6424 in that it    creates IANA registries for that purpose.
