   Then I guess you're saying that the latest ESP draft has to get its
   mandatory to implement reference (MS97) fixed.  Neither the authorship
   nor the title of that reference matches your "des-expiv" reference
   above, which is why I had asked if the *implicit" version is what the
   new ESP draft was truly referencing.  draft-ietf-ipsec-ciph-des-derived-00.txt
   matches the MS97 reference for *both* authorship and title and is also
   a very recent draft.

Yes, this is correct.  My apologies to Steve and Karen for not catching
this when reading earlier versions of their text.

See my previous message about needing to proof the ESP and AH drafts
against the architecture document with respect to the current mandated
algorithms.  I believe it will make the document more understable in the
end, but it does mean we have to do a bit more work to make sure the
text in those documents match the text in the architecture document.
