We currently believe that the Working Group Last Call for the MOBIKE protocol document will start in September, and we may be ready to ask for IETF Last Call in September as well (although the latter may slip to October, depending on the results of the Working Group Last Call). All of these steps will take place on the open mailing list. Ability to co-exist with NAT Traversal is one of the design goals of the MOBIKE protocol. This aspect has taken a lot of our cycles in the working group, but we believe that the current design satisfies the goals. For instance, a client behind a NAT can use MOBIKE. There are some limitations in special cases, however, but the group's understanding has been that we can cover all the scenarios that come up in typical current VPN usage.
