I support adoption of AGL's text. I don't care how the text
ends up in one or more cfrg documents and am fine that that
be figured out after the chairs have evaluated the level of
consensus for the content. I'm also fine if changes are made
later to the generation text, (section 6 of [1]) but if the
chairs do conclude that there is consensus for Curve25519 as
part of the output of this exercise then I would have a
problem were that to change later on (assuming no substantive
show-stopper reason is found of course).
