I strongly recommend to work on this independently from the FreedomBox 

I don't mean "go away - you are disturbing this list" but rather that no 
technology should be unique to FreedomBoxes - so I suggest to either 
remove the term "Freedomboxes" from your paper or at least very clearly 
state it as _example_ use of the proposed protocol, and then goout aim 
more widely with it - e.g. make it a RFC.

Good luck with the project!
