The IETF process requires working implementations, which means that they don't expect people to wait around until the spec is approved before implementing something. If the spec changes, I'm sure that the open source implementations will be changed to match. Sometimes proprietary vendors might decide not to change in the hope that they can lock people in, but for something like zeroconf, it only works if everyone can speak the protocol.
