Yes. That's the current status.

My plan is to have a minimum driver get merged. Then we have a base and
we can
update virtio_i2c_out_hdr.flags for the feature extensibility. Then, If
you want to help to develop
this stuff, you can just follow the same flow. First, you can update the
Spec by sending
comments to virtio-comment@lists.oasis-open.org. Once your Spec patch is
acked by the
virtio TC, you can then send patches to update the corresponding drivers.

Thanks.
