Let me also suggest that when you get it to a state where several of us
think it's mostly complete (realizing that it may always be changing),
you submit it to the IETF as a BCP document. I'm quite sure that Chris
Newman or Lisa Dusseault (currently the Applications Area Directors)
will be please to sponsor it and get it through the process, and I'll be
happy to be its PROTO shepherd.
Let me know if/when you want to do that, and I'll help.
