Support.

Needs some work doing, of course, but it's a good draft representing where we are.

Regarding Rene's point: Agreed. In particular, for everyone's protection and peace of mind, please be mindful that the IPR disclosure rules ought to stay in full effect for all contributions to this document and throughout this process. (Easily editable where it is, but move it here on CFRG adoption: is that the plan?)

Regarding Tony's point: also agreed, in the main. Signatures will be needed in due course (but perhaps not quite as urgently as the rest?). Ed25519 is one potential candidate on the table, and I don't think we've really explored signatures enough to rule anything out at this stage. We can deal with that later on, I hope.
