This document updates RFCs 8029 and 8611, both of which define IANA
registries for MPLS Label Switched Path (LSP) Ping. In particular,
the registration procedure "Private Use" (previously known as "Vendor
Private Use") has been changed to "First Come First Served" for the
TLV and sub-TLV registries. 

It also updates the description of the procedures for the responses
sent when an unknown or erroneous code point is found. The updates
are to clarify and align this namespace with recent developments,
e.g., aligning terminology with RFC 8126 instead of the now obsoleted
RFC 5226 (both titled "Guidelines for Writing an IANA Considerations
Section in RFCs").

This document is a product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
