    Hi Bert,

    Reading RFC 2434 (Guidelines for IANA Considerations), I concluded
    that _before_ submitting a request to IANA, one should submit it
    for discussion to the current/former working mailing list.

    And since I committed an awful typo on that erroneous ASN.1 comment,
    it was worth it.

    I'll submit the change request to IANA in a few days after any
    further comment on this mailing list settles.

    Cheers,
    - Ira
