All- ,

This is to pick up on the point raised by Alan.

The suggestion is to reflect:

 - IETF defines the whole number resource space
 - IETF assign a part of the numbers space to RIR allocations

Do you think this is would be a more accurate description?

I think this is the text in question - it currently limits IETF's scope
to special purpose values only.

The specific registries that are administered by the IANA per the
authority delegated to the Internet Number Registry System are
"Autonomous System (AS) Numbers", "IANA IPv4 Address Space
Registry", and "IPv6 Global Unicast Address Assignments". Note that
within each IANA registry, there are also special-purpose values, and
those special-purpose values are outside the Internet Numbers Registry
System and instead administered under the direction of the IETF. The
delineation of the specific ranges delegated to the Internet Number
Registry system is provided in RFC 7249.
