I did some research while reading this discussion:
- N3515 was updated as N3747
- Both were reviewed in the Chicago meeting in 2013, see item 52
"author encouraged to pursue the idea further with revised papers."
- There is no public trace from any related paper since then (that I could
find). The author seem to be focused on a lot of different subjects, for
search for Walter Brown in this page (2015 papers so far) :
So he might have stopped improving the proposal to focus on these.
Maybe you could see with Walter Brown if he did some more unpublished work
on this subject.
