That's why I said "but

Even if the draft standard got approved today, and both gpg and pgp corp
had working production implementations, it'll be years before it gets to
the point where you can assume random users will be able to support ECC.
But if you just wanted to use it with your inner circle, be it an
eco-terrorist cell or a fantasy football league, you actually could
start using it today.
