1. Introduction

[RFC4412] defines the "Resource-Priority Namespaces" and "Resource- Priority Priority-values" registries. The management policy of these registries is "Standards Action" [RFC5226]. Experience suggests that a document that only defines a new namespace with its priorities, and does not create new protocol semantics, should not be a Standards- Track document. Therefore, this document updates [RFC4412] to change the management policy of the registries to "IETF Review".

2. Security Considerations

This document does not introduce any security considerations beyond those discussed in [RFC4412].

3. IANA Considerations

IANA has changed the management policy of the "Resource-Priority Namespaces" and "Resource-Priority Priority-values" registries to "IETF Review" [RFC5226].
