I agree with your assessment. ATIS (along with NENA and APCO) is in the process of initiating planning to support standards development.
Once ATIS has agreed on something, then it will be more clear on what the IETF needs to do for standards support.
It is anticipated that there will be communications among SDOs (ATIS, 3GPP, IETF, IEEE, etc.) to discuss the support of a standards development plan and possibly coordination like we have done in the past with the Emergency Services Coordination Group.

I agree that there does appear to be standards work that may be needed, with a role for the IETF.  However, before we in the IETF in general or geopriv (or ecrit) in particular jump in with specific proposals, I think we need to understand the requirements and overall architecture.  Since we are discussing protocols to be used with cellular calls, we need to work with the cellular industry to be sure that what we develop meets their needs and will be used.

To my knowledge, there has been very little discussion, much less agreement, by an industry-specific SDO such as ATIS (since we are talking about the U.S.). Once this is done, the objectives for the IETF, as well as industry groups, will become clear.  In addition the FCC has not issued any new mandate as of yet and is still in an NPRM process.

Therefore, I think we need to wait until discussions on the requirements and architecture have further progressed by the industry groups.
