Nothing says that we can't finish things sooner than defined by the
milestones on the charter (I'm not quite sure how those got defined,
because I think we can finish sooner, but Working Group chairs and IETF
Area Directors tend to be conservative about milestones). Feel free to
help in that effort instead of continually beating the dead horse of
ESessions. Indeed, once I convert XEP-0210 to an Internet-Draft that
specifies our requirements, you are free to write an Internet-Draft that
proposes ESessions as the preferred direction for end-to-end encryption
to meet those requirements (yes, the IETF is an open standards
organization!).
