The Postfix code for DANE in SMTP was developed in parallel with the early
drafts of RFC767[12].  I don't recall any "rubber stamp" objections.  Perhaps
that was an exception, but at least that objection is not universal.

Work on the Postfix code began in Mar/2013 and on the new drafts in May/2013.
Stable code in Postfix 2.11 was released in Jan/2014, and the RFCs were finally
published in Oct/2015.
