Table of Contents

1. Introduction

Part five of the Dynamic Delegation Discovery System (DDDS), RFC 3405 [RFC3405], descrbes the registration procedures for assignments in URI.ARPA. The document requires that registraations be in the "IETF tree" of URI registrations. The use of trees was discontinued so there is no way in the process set out in BCP 35 [RFC7595] to meet the requirement.

1.1. Requirements Language

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

2. Updated Requirements

All registrations in URI.ARPA MUST be for schemes which are permanent registrations, as they are described in BCP 35.
