One attempt almost 3 years ago, doesn't sound very
serious to me. And if the discussion is only concerned
with seeking consensus on implementing a new flavor 
of BGP protocol then it isn't much of a discussion.

In fact, there was a consensus at Salt Lake City that
the issues of routing security could be adequately dealt
with by existing tools and protocols. Not all problems
require new protocols to solve them.
