Yeah. Then 192.0.35/24 would be a good choice. It's in an IANA reserved
block that already has subnets allocated for special purposes such as
192.0.2/24 for use in textbook examples. I picked 35 at random except for
making sure that there are no digits in common with 192.0 because that
makes it easier for people to type in correctly, etc.

Sounds like you already have a good start on the document. Write it up
according to these guidlines ftp://ftp.ietf.org/ietf/1id-guidelines.txt
and http://info.internet.isi.edu:80/in-notes/rfc/files/rfc2223.txt and
then send it to rfc-editor@isi.edu when you are done.

Basically the only generic place for this sort of stuff is the ietf
mailing list http://www.ietf.org/maillist.html but you don't need to do
that to get things started.
