What ever happened to... MARP (Multi-Access Reachability Protocol)

Last draft appeared to be


which expired Sept 2003 (Abstract: defines a protocol to quickly determine
the existence or aliveness of devices attached to a shared media
(broadcast) subnet.)

First read about it in this presentation, where it was billed as an
alternative to fast hellos:


The idea was that a switch could notify connected routers of link failures
immediately - there would be no need to wait for the dead and hold-timers
to expire.

Is this idea still flying? There appears to be very little on the net
about it, except what I've mentioned above.



... noting that a few other I-Ds built forward on BFD rather than MARP.
