(B.32) Section 5, IANA Considerations

In practice, it doesn't make any difference who "facilitate[s]
the establishment of the relationship between the RFC
Production Center and IANA" because that relationship is
working and doesn't need fixing much less "facilitating". But,
if anything needs to be said here, the coordination of that
relationship should lie with the IAB, since it has formal
responsibility for both the RFC Editor and the IANA. Were any
conflict to arise between the Production Center and the IANA
that could not be resolved informally, resolving it would
certainly fall to the IAB. By contrast, the IAOC, which is
designated as doing the facilitation in that section of this
document, does not appear to me to have any relationship with
the IANA at all: there are no contracts, no legal arrangements,
and no oversight. The IETF Trust does have a limited
relationship with IANA, but the Trust is not mentioned in this
document at all.
