I have looked at the discussions on the list (or lack thereof). I also 
cannot see too many internet drafts on the topics belonging to the 
group's charter. I am very happy with the RFC that has been produced by 
the working group, but we also seem to have some actual protocol work 
happening elsewhere (e.g., in the context of the ROLL WG).

I discussed this matter with the chairs and my co-AD, and we are 
wondering if it would be time to close the working group. I do know that 
there is at least one implementation team that is still in the process 
of describing their DHCP-based solution, maybe there are similar efforts 
on the distributed solution space. My proposal is that we close the 
working group and I'be VERY happy to AD sponsor all such solutions to 
Experimental RFCs as soon as we have those proposals in some reasonable 
shape.

Thoughts?
