We want to send a message to the NACO nodes first about the new 368 subfields (as well as the new NACO fields 385, 386, 672, and 673) before they are ready for use. I have a PCC list message ready to go on these as well -- guess we can consider that the official announcement -- so please wait until that message goes out to the list. It should be later this week.

Speaking of the February update, I noticed the prohibition against using the 368 $d, $s, $t, $u, and $v has been lifted. Are these subfields available for use today, or should we wait for an official announcement?
