GroEL as RNA chaperone?

How well is the proposal of Georgellis that GroEL functions as 
a chaperone for mRNA going over with everyone?

I have some catching up to do, but am first disturbed by the 
lack of evidence for interaction with RNAs other than OmpA
and 9S in Molecular Micro 16, p.1259 (1995).

I like the study, but feel like what has been shown is very
preliminary, and difficult to draw such a model from.

Anyone? (Please E-mail me a copy of responses)
