There are other protocols that specify a cipher suite for IBEA-CBC (e.g., TLS, IPSec), but they do not use this OID.  Further, I can’t find anyplace where the string “IDEA-CBC” would have been imported (PKCS#1/8/11/12) and I can’t find an example of where they were. So, I reviewed this and believe this errata is correct and should be approved.
