Philosophically, I think the IETF is the "right" venue for the
document, but I understand that it's politically unpopular.  Browser
vendors are converging on the algorithm in the draft, which is great.
I think it makes sense to publish it in a permanent form so that folks
years from now will know how this stuff works.  If you have advice for
how to make it more palatable to the IETF, I'd welcome your input.
