Isn't the interoperability due to the fact that RRL only interacts with 
DNS clients, not other authoritative name servers.  In that case, is there 
really a need for all versions to work exactly the the same?   Shouldn't a 
DNS server be able to protect itself in any manner the authors feel works 
best as long as reasonable clients can resolve their queries?

As more is learned about rate limiting, perhaps best practices can be 
developed, and some things that are done now may be proven ineffective, 
but does any of this need to ultimately end up as an RFC?
