Given that, we have just published a new version of draft-pp-dprive-common-features that lists "SVCB on the client side" as one discovery mechanism, and a new version of draft-ietf-dprive-unauth-to-authoritative that points to that mechanism. When the folks with the fully-authenticated use case do agree on a signaling mechanism, that can be added to the -common-features draft.

If the WG wants it as a WG document, great; if not, we would pull back all those features into draft-ietf-dprive-unauth-to-authoritative and the WG would have to decide what to do for the eventual fully-authenticated draft.

The WG can work on the already-adopted unauthenticated use case, and the fully-authenticated use case can catch up when there are authors interested in keeping the discussion on their protocol moving.
