We are interested in promoting this standard and are willing to lead a reference implementation for OpenBMC if there is not yet something in progress.  If there is something in progress, can you point me at the work because I would love to see it.

We are interested in this as well, although we are in the early stages
of looking into it.  Ideally we'd like to have OpenBMC support add in
cards (NICs, Accelerators, ect) that supported this functionality, and
make that data available to the normal OpenBMC channels

The mailing list tends to be a good choice for the very early
discussions.  https://github.com/openbmc/docs/blob/master/designs/design-template.md
tends to be a more formal process if that's what you're looking for.
