I agree, I'd like to see a really good rationale.

One would be good.  Suits me to go for the longest one.

How about this:



>>       ID           Algorithm                             Text Name
>>       --           ---------                             ---------

snip

>>       15         - SHA3-512 [FIPS202]                    "SHA3-512"



And while we're at it, can we add DEPRECATED to all the rest except 
SHA(2)512 ?

ps;  And that 100-110 monstrosity - sheesh!  ;-)
