The draft is written as a response to the IAB removing their objection 
to Unicode 7.0.0; this was conditional to an RFC being created that 
describes the way forward. As the designated expert, Patrik is working 
on fulfilling that condition.

Peter, Could you specify which other issues you see here?

There are a a few issues that IETF and Unicode do not quite see 
eye-to-eye on, but this document attempts to cover all of them that are 
relevant to using the IDNA algorithm for Unicode 7.0.0 to 11.0.0
