According to BIP-0002, if there has been no progress from Draft status in three years, anybody can request to have a BIP rejected.

BIP47 has been in production and heavy use by Samourai Wallet for years. There are probably other wallets that support it as well that I'm not aware of. I'm not sure what bearing that has on the BIP, but being adopted by some industry participants doesn't sound like a "rejected" BIP to me.

Why hasn't @samouraiwallet submitted a PR for advancing the BIP to "Proposed" status?

@SamouraiDev I thought you should be pinged as you have it pinned.

Samourai Wallet implemented BIP47 and has since developed extensions for Segwit compatibility (P2SH and P2WPKH). Our PayNym offering is very popular as evidenced by the 22,129 users who have opted-in to sharing their stealth address and pseudonym on our directory PayNym.is. BIP47 will continue to provide a foundation for the services we provide. Merge this PR or not. This particular bureaucratic process is of no interest to us.

If a standard has good adoption, I think it's worth effort making into the BIP or it will be a loss for both the proposal and the Bitcoin community....
