Are there any other issues blocking an IANA release for this? Are we waiting on Magadan?

>> Magadan has no approvals yet.  It is on the agenda for discussion for March 15th, per the meeting notices published athttp://asozd2.duma.gov.ru   It seems unlikely to me that it will pass with a March 27th effective date as currently written, but that's just my opinion.
