None of the code points in the IKEV2 document are authoratative; that
honor belongs to the IANA registry.  Yet, they are useful because
there are a useful guide to initial implementors.  It is for that
reason that I believe a little duplication can be a good thing.

Otherwise, one could argue that all of the tables in IKEv2 are
duplicative of the IANA registry, and therefore aren't needed; we
should just establish the IANA registry and just delete all of the
tables from the I-D (and from every other RFC that has initial
codepoint values in them).
