You side-stepped my budget question.  So I assume no money is available.
This is a pity, because the best minds in the crypto world will not work
for free, unlike the usual university or corporate lab network programmer
in an IETF WG.  This will make it difficult to produce anything useful
here.  As a practical matter we will need to back up our RFC's with
outside analysis.  This can be costly (although I suppose we would get
discounts).

Good luck (raising cash),
