My intention with the meeting is to form an actual proposal that all
implementors can agree on. We can produce proposals, and even new
standardized fields to no avail, as some implementors (especially
OpenBSD) appear to be stuck with implementations that collide with the
standard. These implementors need to be "awakened" and entered into
the discussions before anything can be done.

What technical flaws are you trying to point out exactly? (The TX
flags field? My point is that it's worthless to "standardize" TX flags
by extending it and moving to "Defined fields" if noone is willing to
implement it.)
