thanks for bringing this up and apologies for the late reply.

We didn't meet around IETF-109.

This is definitely an interesting topic for DINRG, and we should talk 
about it at an upcoming meetings.

We are currently planning upcoming meetings etc., and we should have a 
more concrete plan for early 2021 activities after new year.

In the meantime, please feel free to use the mailing list as well.

Thanks,
Dirk
