4.  IANA Considerations

   This document creates new IANA registries for location types as
   listed in Section 3 starting with 'aircraft' and finishing with
   'public-transport'.

   Following the policies outline in RFC 2434 [2], these tokens are
   assigned on a 'First Come First Served' policy.  Each registration
   must include the name of the token and a brief description similar to
   the ones offered in for the initial registrations contained this
   document:

   Token Identifier:

      Identifier of the token


   Description:

      Brief description indicating the meaning of the token.


   Note that the usage of these tokens is not limited to XML and the
   'Token Identifier' is the XML element content and not the XML element
   name.

5.  Security Considerations

   This document defines a registry for location types and as such does
   not raise security issues.
