I think it's more a "technical lifestyle" (to make up a phrase) thing,
rather than a particular technical focus, that determines where people go
when they give up on the IETF.

E.g. I've turned back to pure research, since I got tired of banging my head
on the wall at the IETF (although there are a few groups which have
interesting technical discussions which I still listen to), and decided the
bang/buck ratio for my investments of time/energy was higher there, not to
mention that it was more fun.
