I'm sorry for not responding sooner.

I'm happy for the RG to adopt draft-ladd-spake2 as a starting point.  I
think it still needs additional work before publication, but not enough
to be a barrier to adoption.

To address some comments I've heard earlier, PAKE algorithms are still
interesting for protocols such as Kerberos, especially for zeroconf or
near-zeroconf situations.
