Hi Mike,

without going into a line-by-line, these look like good ways forward.

Re the registration example descriptions: What would, for somebody registering a new algorithm, help most in understanding your intentions for this field?  I think just picking one of the descriptions from the initial registrations would work here, say "HMAC using SHA-256” (or even "RSAES OAEP using SHA-256 and MGF1 with SHA-256”).
