When it is reasonably complete, it would be nice to have it as an
informational or better yet, standards-track IETF RFC.  

IETF RFC non-experimental status allows us to require RRUL testing prior to
service acceptance, and even add it as one of the SLA metrics on public
tenders, which goes a long way into pushing anything into more widespread
