Actually, from what I understand of IETF processes, they are quite
close to a standard protocol. A lot of time is spent on the model and the
requirements. But then people go off and produce sample implimentations.
Of course, I could be wrong. I knew that several people are
producing sample implimentations. based on the spec fso far.

Technically speaking, the current Jabbe rprotocol could be implemented to meet all IMPP requirements, and be called a 'standard protocol'..
