Be careful. Others have brought up similar proposal before. IETF stands for
Internet Engineering TF... Networking is the name of the game. ;-) If not
networking, I fear it would be wrong place to do the work.

In SDN, our focus is on networking. Further, we are trying to
distance ourselves from the actual DC network fabric design (all
vendor-specific so far).
