I found this interesting, in light of our current CR discussions;

> This document suggests another way of reforming IETF standards
>    process by formalizing the mechanism for interoperability  
> reporting,
>    as a way of facilitating standards development.  It establishes two
>    kinds of reports: a 'Protocol Feature Set', which lays out the  
> set of
>    features from IETF specifications that constitute a protocol, and a
>    'Protocol Implementation Report', which is submitted by an  
> individual
>    or group to report on implementation and interoperability testing.

Larry goes on to talk about requirements for an XML-based format to  
describe feature sets with.
