Values for the key protocol octet are incorrect. They should be:

        VALUE   Protocol

          0      -reserved
          1     reserved (was TLS)
          2     reserved (was email)
          3     dnssec
          4     reserved (was IPSEC)
         5-255   reserved


Rationale: Looking at RFC2535, the values are the original assignments. The
numbers in RFC3445 are incorrect and don't match. I guess since the
registry was closed, they are all reserved now and no one double checked.

RFC 2535 has the original correct assignments, and the registry is correct
in stating that they are now all reserved.
