I agree, I had already typed my reply and then deleted the draft.
Douglas, you just didn't carefully read what he wrote :-)
I could see along the lines that he'd referred to the conclusions / breaking point of existing threads on this. Besides, the question was if there is any PLAN NOW to get things sorted, which is independent of any prior unanswered (and also different) threads.
Plus, not continuing to ask is the one way that can't have an effect.
I sense the guys have been quite busy considering they already got a 300+page book written, and I also can see on here that the Onion team is recovering or busy on something since 4weeks+.
In any case, like he wrote, it's a deprecated standard. It should be resolved, and likely can, and likely will. Knowing if it someone has set aside some time for this in, say August, or during Winter time, would allow for a rough plan and mean people can decide what they can build based on the hardware, and what not.
