As I said, the IETF is *WORKING THROUGH* 2 or 3 variations. They may end
up dropping the whole thing. Or the final draft that comes out might be
quite different from what was first proposed by a certain vocal person
on this list. The point is, that ULA-C doesn't exist until IANA
allocates the address range and that doesn't happen until the IETF
publishes an RFC.

The IETF defines technology, it does not mandate that anyone use the
technology. There are lots of ghost towns in the RFC collection.
