Work that comes to the IETF often has a significant history before that, 
often including a well-developed specification and significant installed 
base.

It is not uncommon to publish that pre-IETF specification as an RFC, to 
establish the formal background for the prior work. That's what was done 
for DMARC.

The political -- and, IMO, technical -- issues at the time merely served 
to delay seeking standards track for a revised specification, which is 
what is now being pursued.  While this amount of delay is unusual, the 
sequence is not.
