Do you think that there are more proposals compared to other areas?

Maybe. Still, that's about the time it will take to finish the work. 
If there some minor differences to some other proposals then one really
think whether there isn't a simpler way to accomplish the same

In the STUN Controlled NAT BOF there were more questions on the "why"
(related to deployment incentives) rather than on the "how".
