The IESG has received a request from the DNS Extensions WG (dnsext) to
consider the following document:
- 'Applicability Statement: DNS Security (DNSSEC) DNSKEY Algorithm IANA

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits
final comments on this action.
Speaking as individual, not AD.
The document says in section 2.1:
2.1. Updates and Additions
This document updates three entries in the Domain Name System
Security (DNSSEC) Algorithm Registry. They are:
The description for assignment number 4 is changed to "Reserved until
The description for assignment number 9 is changed to "Reserved until
The description for assignment number 11 is changed to "Reserved
OK, I give up....What happens in the year 2020? The end of the Mayan
calendar? Another prediction of the coming apocalypse? Oprah will return?
Without the jokes: I find "due dates" in standards completely
ridiculous, without any purpose, and object strongly to them. I cannot
see what the dates add to the reservation of these code points, and
there is no explanation of dates (let alone these *particular* dates) in
the draft. These either need to be explained in excruciating detail or
Registry entries 13-251 remains Unassigned.
That would be a surprise, since the current registry at
123-251 Reserved [RFC6014][standards track]
This document makes a change to 123-251. That either needs justification
in the document or needs to be reverted.
In my (personal) opinion, this document is not ready for publication in
its current form.
