Thank you.

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
IPv6 space:

    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].
