I would say working on a draft can be useful, but what's even more 
important is to find people willing to implement it. Just writing a 
draft is unlikely to make implementations happen (even RFC4918 IMHO so 
far has a *single* implementation...).

So I'd urge you to first understand what the problems with the Microsoft 
implementations are, and then to check whether the advanced features 
defined in RFC3253 do not already do what you're looking for (at least 
with respect to transactions).

Best regards, Julian
