Thanks for your answer.
I had understood in the post that the work would be important due to
TCP part that is not separate clearly....
My free time is the only contribution I can do (but if a company heard
us ..... ;) )
I'm sure that I'm not the only person interested by this project (the
openssl DTLS development is a proof that I say is true)
I will start by looking in gnutls source code  to see what is reusable
directly without any modification (the goal of DTLS is to reuse
maximum of TLS source code) and if it's possible (if it isn't a
enormous project and if I have enough time) I will start a gnudtls
project ;)
