In section 7, it says:

7.  IANA Considerations
   Following the policies outlined in [IANA-CONSIDERATIONS], names of
   sender authentication methods supported by this specification must be
   registered with IANA under the IETF Consensus method, with the excep-
   tion of experimental names as defined above.

This needs to be beefed up more. What's the registry look like? There
should be specific recommendations on the information that a document
associated with an authentication method needs to provide. Obviously
there's the name of the authentication method. How about the ptype
values appropriate for this method? Or the property values that are
appropriate for this method?

I suggest adding a form that an RFC for an authentication method can
fill in as part of its text.

In addition, this document specifies the Authentication-Results header,
which needs to be registered in the mail header registry.

If section 5.1 is kept intact, then this document also specifies an
incompatible use of the Priority header that needs to be added as part
of the Priority definition in the mail header registry.
