Enforcement?
Kelly, Do I understand this correctly, the "statement" from the IAB is not a requirement, just a recommendation. So how long of a time period would you expect it to be be before encryption will be the norm? And where do you think the resistance will come from?

Re: Enforcement?
It is technically a recommendation, but when the IAB talks, the IETF (which implements the specs for the technology) usually listens & follows. =) Russ wasn't comfortable providing a timeframe for encryption everywhere it can go. It will be phased in, for sure. And we've already seen an uptick in activity this year (post-NSA revelations), with more  HTTPS sites, the EFF's new free SSL service, etc. The IAB's statement solidifies the trend and should help propel it further.

Re: Enforcement?
I really think this is a big deal. The IAB carries a lot of weight, and if the Internet infrastructure gets updated with more protocols that make it easier for encryption, the products & services will come.

Depth over breadth
re: "figuring out which ones are really needed and putting the focus and review behind those, as opposed to anyone who wants to add one adds one."

This.  This is so important.  People are so pleased to contribute their own things -- but less incentivized naturally to improve others' contributions.  Focusing on improving what we have is the key (no pun intended).

Re: Depth over breadth
What I thought was interesting here is how practical this is in terms of not just throwing in some feature to make someone happy. I don't know if that's always an easy thing to accomplish in standards-land, but the IETF and IAB appear to be setting the tone here for a tight, streamlined protocol, which is cool.
