I also believe that making the spec more useful for implementers is a reasonable request.

We do have to be careful about not misrepresenting the information in the normative documents.  That happens all too easy.  I also believe an actual implementer needs to be aware of the underlying technologies and their security considerations.  Maybe less so someone who just wants to use EDHOC; for this audience the security considerations in the document should be very good.

Maybe the request also is a symptom that we haven’t made those underlying technologies very accessible.  We can work on that, even better if we have some feedback on what created obstacles to understanding.
