This memo reclassifies RFC 4148, "IP Performance Metrics (IPPM)
Metrics Registry", as Obsolete, and withdraws the IANA IPPM Metrics
Registry itself from use because it is obsolete.  The current
registry structure has been found to be insufficiently detailed to
uniquely identify IPPM metrics.  Despite apparent efforts to find
current or even future users, no one responded to the call for
interest in the RFC 4148 registry during the second half of 2010.
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
