Section 7.2 says:

   The specification
   of new MPLS label types MUST be published using a well-established
   and persistent publication medium.

It should say:



This paragraph envisaged that a new RFC be written to specify new label types in the mplsTopLabelType sub-registry.

Since the publication of RFC7012, IANA has added 16 other IPFIX IE sub-registries, none of which have the same requirement. See https://www.iana.org/assignments/ipfix/ipfix.xhtml

Publication in IANA's IPFIX registry should provide a clear and persistent definition. New IPFIX MPLS label type specifications should not be singled out to require persistent publication of an additional document.
