Hi again ;),

We just opened an Issue [1] "802.15.4(e) MAC-Layer Task Force" where we 
can discuss further steps.

Even if this issue might be related to an 802.15.4(e) MAC-Layer, some 
parts of that could also be of interest for other (future) MAC-layer.

 From our perspective an IEEE 802.15.4(e) MAC layer will be most 
beneficial. The most important points would be (i) official 
standardization and (ii) interoperatiblity (RIOT <-> other OS).

What would be your opinion on IEEE 802.15.4e. Is the amendment (e) a 
straight forward extension to the basic 802.15.4 standard or does this 
extention omit the basic mechanisms such as "beacon-mode" and the 
"superframe-architecture"?
Does it makes more sense to implement firstly an basic IEEE 802.15.4 and 
then the amendment (e) or begin directly with the amendment (e)? 
Reference for amendment (e) could be OpenWSN.
