I don't think that is necessarily true.
Every vendor either has or will come up with their
own solution approach. On the other hand, a standard solution
offers the chance of convergence on a single approach.
The evidence in hand (e.g. this I-D, your statement that cisco
is coding it up also) is that several vendors are perfectly
willing and capable of collaborating on a joint spec on this
topic even when it isn't a Proposed Standard.
I actually think that having 2 or more approaches get prototyped
and experimented with would be beneficial, though that seems not
terribly likely this time. If folks implement & experiment,
even with just this one spec, before standardisation, the
results will be better when stuff is standardised.
I don't expect a fully
optimized, close-to-perfect standard until it reached FS.
The deployed Internet runs on I-Ds and Proposed Standard RFCs.
Virtually nothing (even among widely deployed stuff) makes
it to Full Standard. And I also consider this whole assertion
to be a bit of a Red Herring trying to distract from what I
consider the real issue (standardising something before we
have any substantial operational experience with it).
We disagree, but it is not unexpected that on a list this
size that reasonable people might reach divergent conclusions.
