Your chairs have been meeting with our Area Directors at IETF 97 in Seoul
to discuss the fate of DBOUND.

We had our BoF in the spring of 2014 and the WG was formally approved the
following spring.  In the year and a half since, we have made almost no
progress toward a solution to either the combined or reduced problem
space.  Although we have a few proposals before us, we have seen no
convergence on any of them, nor has there been a sustained critical mass of
participants to work on our chartered goals.

At this point, we're not sure what else to try.  We are basically resigned
to the idea that DBOUND as currently constituted will not succeed in
producing something supported by IETF consensus.  We propose to concede and
ask our Area Directors to shut down the working group at the end of this
week, barring a convincing argument not to do so.  We can request that the
WG's list remain open for discussion of any of the current or future
proposals on the topic, and any participants that want to advance one or
more of them can do so via the ART area's current "dispatch" model.

Comments welcome.

-MSK and Pete, your co-chairs
