Except for routing protocols, you don't need running code for Proposed
Standard.  But yes, I received several implementation reports.  I was also
told that Junipers can almost do the filtering:

    Technically the CF does have the ability to see 'any bit in the
    first 21 bytes' of an IP packet... (I believe it's 21 bytes at
    least).  The limitations on the software installed, however,
    keep you from doing the arbitrary bit field/offset business.

See http://www.cs.columbia.edu/~smb/3514.html -- and note that it already
mentions Lawful Intercept.  Yes, it's all from real email
