And "TLS Telnet" is?

If the "comment from security" was truly that the drafts have been at
that stage for a while then the security person doesn't know much about
the internet draft process. The IETF secsh Working Group is most
definitely active, working with currently active drafts as well as some
that are being updated.
Obtaining input from interested parties on the drafts is a valuable part
of the process. I'd sincerely invite your security person to jump into
the mix by helping mold the drafts into what he or she believes to be
"secure". If there's something wrong with the SSH drafts or something
that could be made better it would be a great help if the security
person could lend their knowledge to the process.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
