  As said before, the IETF IMPP HAS NO PROTOCOL as of yet..  I'm putting money on Microsoft getting theirs in as standard, and I wouldn;t count on that for about a year or so..  Technically speaking, the current Jabbe rprotocol could be implemented to meet all IMPP requirements, and be called a 'standard protocol'..
