In the interim meeting we had consensus to use an implicit IV for AEAD.
The proposal was to use the record sequence number and pad with zeros as
described in pull request 155 (
https://github.com/tlswg/tls13-spec/pull/155/files)  This was also
discussed in the IETF-92 meeting in Dallas along with options to change the
offset.  The consensus was to stay with the original proposal.  We are
posting to the mailing list to confirm this consensus. If you have
comments,  please reply by April 17, 2015.
