I suggest you ask this on the relevant IETF mailing list (the list of 
the former EAI WG). Just today there was a report of a company that's 
releasing an EAI product. The archives are here:

I'm not sure you'll find a direct answer, but you'll find others with 
similar needs. See you there.

P.S.: Because the RFCs are baked, the mailing list is currently very low
