I may be missing something -- what do you mean with "argon2 based
PBKDF"?  Argon2 IS a pbkdf, for all definitions of a pbkdf that I am
aware of.

Are you looking for an ASN.1 schema and OID, similar to the one found in
the scrypt document?  Then I understand, and agree, and it should be
part of the next version of draft-josefsson-argon2.
