Of the three currently published proposals, all are essentially IANA registry proposals. We are currently working with IETF staff, with open offers of support from multiple well funded commercial bodies, to transition these proposals through to IANA management. It appears that the Independent Stream Editor path will be used to transition these through to IANA, at which time the proposals themselves will be converted to Informational status. (As far as I understand right now, Within the IETF, Standards Track has special meaning and entails relatively large degrees of bureaucracy that are not within the current contributors' resources. It is also worth pointing out that many popular protocols implemented on the majority of systems (IIRC, such as IMAP) never reach formal standardization for this reason. It should be noted that in these cases, this does not make the protocols any less attractive as potential components for system implementation.) > It also doesn't appear to address ~any of the the targeted items here. > Is there another draft I should be looking for which has more overlap > with the discussion here? As outlined in the previous post: - Internet Financial EXchange (IFEX). A proposal under development that facilitates the negotiation of financial transactions between internet-based financial endpoints. (The area we would love your input) http://www.ifex-project.org/our-proposals/ifex As well as the information linked to above, significant but not particularly well grounded discussions have occurred regarding the IFEX-based paradigm for settlement versus some other proposed paradigms, in particular Ripple (as it appeared some months ago), which can be read here: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/rippleusers/v4bEBZZVEsA[1-25] Kind regards and with the hopes of combining our efforts as a joint proposal that can benefit other currencies/commodities and settlement systems as well as Bitcoin, Walter Stanish Skype:walter.stanish ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Monitor your physical, virtual and cloud infrastructure from a single web console.
