From a draft in 6man:

   The IANA is requested to assign a new IPv6 Neighbor Discovery Option
   type for the DNSSL option defined in this document:

                 Option Name               Type
                 DNSSL option              (TBD)

Usually by the time it gets to AUTH48 IANA has assigned the option value and the RFC editor has filled it in.

These were for an existing registry.

Or were you asking a different question?
