There are multiple subjects here.  I know of someone who is working on
a SRP draft for Kerberos preauth support.  This draft is expected to
be submitted to the IETF.

The question of whether this draft will be standards track or
informational is interesting.

The question of whether SRP will be mandatory to implement is not
interesting; the answer is no.

The question of whether MIT will implement SRP has not been discussed
to my knowledge.
