The IETF directs IANA to assign resources through the vehicle of an RFC.
If the assertion is there's no global unicast prefix out of which the
IETF can assign new addressing resources, then that's probably as it
should be. there's always 240/4 if you can scope the application to
something that does not rely on hosts being able to route it.
