A proposed standard does not require existing or planned
implementations.

I am not aware of anybody planning to implement hit metering either,
and that is going to be a proposed standard too.

For a proposed standard, the only thing required is that the WG thinks
it is a good idea.  If you were to argue this WG as a whole has no
consensus on state-man-mec being a good idea, you would have a very
valid point.

Though I have no objections to this thing being submitted as a
proposed standard, I think that submission as `an experimental RFC
which supersedes 2109' would better reflect the WG status.

Not submitting it at all would mean not fixing the bugs in 2109, which
is not an acceptable option as far as I am concerned.
