Java API for SCTP

I am writing to find out the current status on the support for SCTP in java.
When I googled around, I found the posts made by Christopher Hegarty 
which is a pretty recent post, and wanted to express my interest in what I
hope is a open support for SCTP, as the project I'm currently working in
today has to rely on the Java SCTP API offered by Ivan Skytte Jörgensen ,
which is a JNI package which does not have all functionality that the SCTP
socket draft specifies.
Our project (which is a telecom project) needs the SCTP support to be able
to communicat with the system under test, and a native Java support would be
great. We would like to have non-blocking SCTP instead of our current
implementation which has to support the blocking SCTP read/write the JNI
library implements, which creates the need for a pretty advanced handling.
I see that the draft for SCTP currently lies in com.sun.nio.sctp , so it
has not reached the general audience yet, and I hope I can show that there
exists interest for it.
Also, please send contact me if I can help in any way for it to get into the
JDK release 7.
