You're right, Stephen.  Re-reading the spec, it doesn't say that, and it should.  Sometimes it takes someone giving a spec a fresh read to uncover things that the authors understood and intended but failed to be captured in the text.  This is such a case - so thanks.

I'll add this information, which is necessary to understand the intent, and then republish.

Hmm. I don't recall text saying that in the draft, but it's possible that I missed it - can you point me at that?

I do agree that if the semantics here were "some otp was used"
then it would not be necessary to specify exactly which OTP scheme was used. But that wasn't how I read what this spec was doing. (Again, that could be me getting the wrong end of the stick.)
