In section 1, the draft says:
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.
I suggest changing "special-purpose values" to "reserved or
special-purpose values". This is because not all reservations are for
special purposes; some reservations are for future use. For example,
RFC 7249 section 2.3 gives two different references to reservations of
The vast bulk of the IPv6 address space (approximately 7/8ths of the
whole address space) is reserved by the IETF [RFC4291], with the
expectation that further assignment of globally unique unicast
address space will be made from this reserved space in accordance
with future needs.
Reservations of special-purpose IPv6 addresses can be found in the
IANA registry [IANA-IPv6-Reg]. Future additions to this registry
can be made through "IETF Review" as defined in [RFC5226].
