I don't know that you need my permission, but in any event by all means please do plagiarize it. Frankly, you could make a Serpent draft in short order by simply replacing the string "Camellia" with "Serpent" and changing the references. Most of the text there applies just as well to Serpent as it does to Camellia.
I can send you the XML source to the draft if you like - xml2rfc handles all the RFC formatting and boilerplate for you.
