On the other hand, it may take too long in IETF, and would require extensive
debate over architecture, framework, requirements... ;-)

Bittorrent has about as clear a protocol spec as anything
gets. The fact that it hasn't been blessed by an SDO has not
precluded multiple inter-operable implementations.
