RE: [Geopriv] Re: Radius-Geopriv: CDMA operator-name prefix / registry
The IANA considerations created two things.
It created the type registry. That is quite understandable. (And given
the stated goal of allowing folks to keep doing what they are already
doing, probably necessary.)
It also states that the REALM operator identification type contains values
registered within IANA. And it says nothing more about it other than that
IANA shall maintain the registry.
Realm (DNS domain) is entirely reasonable to use as an operator identification.
However, what I was objecting to is creating another registry for it.

Isn't that just a list of "operator types", which is relatively
small amount of information? Actual management of operators is
delegated to appropriate organizations identified by the operator
