>    PS: Note I have NOT uploaded the -13 edition of the document pending
    feedback/consensus on the ecdh-sha2-nistp{256,384,512} being SHOULD
    instead of MUST. I would be more likely to want curve25519-sha256 to be
    a MUST rather than SHOULD than the nistp curves be a MUST... mostly due
    to personal bias.
