I oppose publishing the current draft.
There are two unresolved issues still being discussed on the TLS mailing list:
1. non-extension signaling for older versions (SSLv3 and maybe TLS 1.0)
2. explicit vs implicit addition of old verify_data to the PRF (also known as
fail-unsafe vs fail-safe)
I think the WG is converging, and that a couple of more weeks of discussion may
lead to consensus.
I agree with David-Sarah Hopwood that a last call (WG or IETF) is still
Ietf mailing list
