Well I will continue submiting the draft, and the openpgp support from gnutls
isn't going anywhere. Whether it will be advanced to RFC status, is up to
the ietf-tls Working Group[0]. Usually drafts move to RFC status if there is
interest about them (in the WG mailing list). So you might want to forward your 
question to the Working Group's mailing list.
