In the XMPP community we are defining a way to use TLS for end-to-end 
encryption. We'd love to use short authentication strings (SAS) for 
identity verification. As far as I can see no one has worked on a TLS 
extension for SAS. Is there interest in doing so? I'd be happy to help 
write an I-D on this topic, but I'm not a TLS or security expert so it 
might not be appropriate for me to lead the effort.
