Implementation Status Sections

As per RFC6982, a WG may maintain the Implementation Status details in a Wiki (here) and reference the Wiki in the WG documents.

These sections record the status of known implementations of the protocols defined by specifications at the time of posting of the WG Internet-Drafts, and is based on a proposal described in RFC6982. The description of implementations in this section is intended to assist the IETF in its decision processes in progressing drafts to RFCs. Please note that the listing of any individual implementation here does not imply endorsement by the IETF. Furthermore, no effort has been spent to verify the information presented here that was supplied by IETF contributors. This is not intended as, and must not be construed to be, a catalog of available implementations or their features. Readers are advised to note that other implementations may exist. According to RFC 6982, "this will allow reviewers and working groups to assign due consideration to documents that have the benefit of running code, which may serve as evidence of valuable experimentation and feedback that have made the implemented protocols more mature. It is up to the individual working groups to use this information as they see fit".
