OK, let me rephrase my question: there is no currently existing direct
non-testped deployment on dedicated infrastructure for these protocols

Any real network one can use are currently still overlay networks?

So the question is: while this is still in process, there is still no
party which would decide to use it "in production", directly, no?

What is this document's editorial policy on including promising to-be
technologies and approaches? Should we maybe have a section to
speculate and provide some links (we could also mention DTN there)?

Yes, it is interesting how different projects are picking different
trade-offs. It will be really interesting to see which ones will take
