Interoperable as in "what the IETF touts as its chief objective."  Here I mean that the different implementations differ a bit but not in a way that causes problems for other elements.  I.e., a client {recursive server} can interact with a RRL BIND and an RRL NSD without any hitches or surprises.

Independence of the code bases is a consideration in the IETF when it come to advancing a document along it's standards track.  That's well after making an internet draft and after being a proposed standard.  (Process has changed at IETF, noted.)  For RRL, the fact that there are independent implementations is not that significant, document process wise, if this "only" stays as a non-standards document.

Regardless, multiple independent implementations does show interest...

There are no answers - just tradeoffs, decisions, and responses.
