Not yet even a proprosed IETF standard

I agree. Sorry if it sounded like I was criticizing the implementors. My only point was that the _article_ leaves the impression that there is a published standard against which to evaluate the implementation. E.g. it talks of "using the same specifications as Apple's Bonjour". In fact there is not yet a standard. The latest draft is from June, after Apple shipped Bonjour, and there will likely be more drafts to come. And note it often goes the other way around in the IETF - the drafting of the standard relies in part on implementation efforts and experiences like this one.

I just thought the reader needed to know how much all of this is still potentially in flux.
