Thanks a lot for the summary. While it is highly welcome from a
consumer/privacy point of view to add DTLS as soon as technically feasable
(just reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datagram_Transport_Layer_Security
"... provides communications privacy for
sounds like it is quite a useful and given increased awareness of this
matter demanded feature) there are obstacles we should also be aware of,
like government and similar agencies demanding a "TSA lock" for such
protocols allowing them to also collect Data where "No Man has gone Before"
if you want, since M2M is about Machine 2 Machine, not Man 2 Man or Human
Thus instead of adding a privacy and security feature at least those
implementing it may soon be forced to provide a back door for, it seems a
reasonable decision to postpone it at least till a MR of CLDC 8 or CLDC 9.
