Do IPsec people know about:

Description of Working Group

The BFD Working Group is chartered to standardize and support the
bidirectional forwarding detection protocol (BFD) and its extensions. A
core goal of the working group is to standardize BFD in the context of IP
routing, or protocols such as MPLS that are based on IP routing, in a way
that will encourage multiple, inter-operable vendor implementations. The
Working Group will also provide advice and guidance on BFD to other working
groups or standards bodies as requested.

I don't think that this addreses any work item for IPsecME, but I
thought that maybe it might help someone to know about this.
