This document is intended to accomplish two highly inter-related
tasks: to establish an "initial" Internet Code Point (ICP) assignment
for each of IPv4 and IPv6 address encoding in Network Service Access
Point (NSAP) Addresses, and to recommend an IANA assignment policy
for currently unassigned ICP values.  In the first task, this document
is a partial replacement for RFC 1888 -- particularly for section 6 of
RFC 1888.  In the second task, this document incorporates wording and
specifications from ITU-T Recommendation X.213 and further recommends
that IANA use the "IETF consensus" assignment policy in making future
ICP assignments.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
