I don't think the WG should adopt this.

There are essentially two separate proposals in the I-D. Section 5 proposes a slight change to TLS that results in no changes on the wire and, as far as I can tell, is already allowed (but should probably be discouraged) in the TLS 1.3 I-D. Thus, there's nothing for the WG to do.

Sections 6 and 7 propose a new protocol for distributing key pairs. The use case is TLS, but it isn't specific to TLS and doesn't interact with TLS (outside of using TLS for HTTPS). As such, I believe it's outside the WG's charter.
