Since you suggest IOPS as a body to track this issue, what do people think
about IOPS as a pseudo-standards group. This also came up at the December
IETF when Curtis suggested that draft-berkowitz-multirqmt document would
not be necessary since IOPS had a draft on the same subject. The IDR WG
seemed very sceptical of having a small closed body fill that role. How do
people see IOPS meshing with NANOG and the operational side of IETF?
