My list is kind of short:

0) Could the CFRG get behind these recommendations for RSA-OAEP/PSS or not:
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/saag/current/msg04481.html
http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/saag/current/msg04482.html

If so, let’s do a draft!

1) Assuming RSA goes kaput, it seems like we’re moving towards EC (am I wrong here) then are these EC-based documents worth saying more about (e.g., in the next version of the protocol use this or run away in fear):
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/rfc6979/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-peck-ecdhpop/
https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-jivsov-ecc-compact/

2) Is QKD something we need to start considering:
http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-nagayama-ipsecme-ipsec-with-qkd-00.txt
http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-ghernaouti-sfaxi-ppp-qkd-00.txt
