my point is that calling it an "IETF hackathon" sort of implies (at least to me) that IETF technologies would be hacked with, when in reality that's not the case in most of the listed examples. They maybe *intended* as input to the IETF, but they aren't IETF technologies (published as RFCs or at least adopted as WG work items.)
