Hi.

As co-author of the draft, it's no surprise that I think it's ready. So
I'll just point out that:
 - The algorithms described have been implemented multiple times, both by
the authors and by others
 - At least two implementations were done by following the draft (and the
test vectors checked out)
 - At least one browser (Google Chrome) has these algorithms running in
production and used with the Google servers.

So I guess we've got the "running code" part down.

Yoav
