Brian: What exactly where the points that stopped the last MSNIP draft
from moving forward ? I unfortunately don't remember the details,
and in general i'm of course annoyed that there's no good means in the
IETF to keep that last work status summary alive in case it needs to
get picked up again.

I think MSNIP tried to solve a key functionality for the SSM architecture,
and while it may be possible to ad-hoc hack something similar up once
somebody requires it, i still think that it would be good to have an
IETF recommendation for this functionality.

If we were to release an RFC, we could make it informational. I don't
think that MSNIP itself needs to be focussed on what Pekka is claiming
"universal adoption". Because it only applies to sources, it will always
tender only to comparably much fewer places than for example IGMP. 

Cheers
