Thanks for bringing this to the attention of the list.

IMHO, This definitely needs to be taken up in IETF. Is it too late to get a BOF on this in Minneapolis?

Maybe. But, regardless, they haven't asked us for one, and none of the principals there are IETF regulars. They have their own closed-door meetings; it seems a tad rude for us to preempt them.

My suggestion is that we lobby them to turn their proposals into one or more Internet Drafts and open their discussion. If they are amenable to that, we can probably move forwards easily. They have another meeting coming up in January; we could shoot for that as a discussion forum.
