             TLV Naming in the Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)                    Generalized Packet/Message Format


   This document reorganizes the naming of already-allocated TLV (type-    length-value) types and type extensions in the "Mobile Ad hoc NETwork    (MANET) Parameters" registries defined by RFC 5444 to use names    appropriately.  It has no consequences in terms of any protocol    implementation.

   This document also updates the Expert Review guidelines in RFC 5444,    so as to establish a policy for consistent naming of future TLV type    and type extension allocations.  It makes no other changes to    RFC 5444.
