Sure. I'm not saying "just do the bare minimum", but until now the only 
real clear requirement was the front-channel query idea, which was really 
just requested attributes, and that's a pretty simple task.

The specification itself is basically a closed item. This is just a new 
specification defining one or more extensions, like many before now. 
They're Committee Specifications unless somebody actually implements and 
attests to it, and then they can ballot to become Standards.

For a 2.1? Maybe, but that's a huge amount of work, and the value is very 
limited unless the "bodies" doing it understood all the post 2.0 work that 
has been done and were willing to incorporate it. When I offered to work 
on it before I had to withdraw, that was the value proposition.
