    DCCP: Eddie Kohler; SCTP: Allison Mankin
Service names and port numbers are used to distinguish between different
services that run over transport protocols such as TCP, UDP, DCCP, and

Service names are assigned on a first-come, first-served process, as
documented in [RFC6335].

Port numbers are assigned in various ways, based on three ranges: System
Ports (0-1023), User Ports (1024-49151), and the Dynamic and/or Private
Ports (49152-65535); the difference uses of these ranges is described in
[RFC6335]. System Ports are assigned by IETF
process for standards-track protocols, as per [RFC6335].  User Ports
are assigned by IANA using the "IETF Review" process, the "IESG 
Approval" process, or the "Expert Review" process, as per
[RFC6335].  Dynamic Ports are not assigned.

The registration procedures for service names and port numbers are
described in [RFC6335].

Assigned ports both System and User ports SHOULD NOT be used without
or prior to IANA registration.

presence Peer-to-peer messaging / Link-Local Messaging [XMPP_Registrar] [XMPP_Registrar] Defined TXT keys: See Note: Registration updated May 2007. Was formerly listed as "iChat AV" (Apple's IM client for Mac OS X) with TXT keys: txtvers, port.p2pj, phsh, vc, 1st, AIM, msg, status, last When first shipped in Mac OS X 10.2, iChat's peer-to-peer messaging protocol was created to solve the problem of serverless messaging between peers on the same link. However, there is nothing inherent in the protocol that limits it to being only link-local; it was simply an artifact of iChat in Mac OS X 10.2 using link-local Multicast DNS to discover peers. With the advent of Wide-Area DNS-SD, it is also possible to use iChat's peer-to-peer messaging between machines on different links.
