Us too! I'm interested in looking at MCTP, and am in the middle of doing 
a little prototyping with our host firmware stack.

I'd also like to avoid duplicating work though, have you (or others) 
made progress on this since this initial email? I know there was a 
presentation on MCTP at the recent hackathon, but I'm not sure if any 
solid plans came from that.

If not, I'd be happy to sketch out an architecture for this...
