  I've got one comment here on
  section 7. paragraph 4. "Subsequent Allocation":

  While the wording might be sufficiently clear for a native speaker by
  referring to "set of administrative procedures....", I am missing clear
  guidance for the IANA that there should _not_ be any incentive or
  responsibilty to consult with other groups, entities or third parties
  (irrespective of their, say, credibility for e.g. protocol development
  or technical specifications) which would require extending that 30 day

  My proposal would be that IANA would have to perform the subsequent
  allocation within this 30 day period, even if they might not be able to
  obtain advice or an expertise (for whatever reason) from any other party
  they might have decided to ask for advice.
