Right, and yet, the WG can't really guarantee a schedule.
If you read to end, you'll see that I propose a way in which the various
industry groups can receive official EAT claim #s from the not-yet-created
IANA registry.
That allows them to do interop while EAT specification progresses.
Whether they wish to "release" before EAT has an RFC# or not, is up to them.

Distinct, and yet they are related because FIDO's voucher specification seems
to be an EAT rather than a constrained-voucher.
