I support adopting the draft. VOPRFs, and especially ECVOPRFs, have 
interesting applications, such as Privacy Pass and variants of the idea 
involving blind token distribution for, e.g., authentication. There are 
some tricky parts in the protocol, so implementers of the protocol would 
benefit greatly from having a document describing a well-defined 
protocol description, secure instantiations (which describe components 
such as hash-to-curve) and security considerations.
