1) All for it

2) I question the need for TLS_DHE_ ciphersuites, and I seriously doubt anybody’s going to use those with ChaCha20 “in the wild”. Other than that, I’m all for early assignment as it would allow us to get the algorithms into code-bases and test interoperability quicker.

The WG needs this draft to specify code points in support of the recent MTI consensus call (see http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/tls/current/msg16343.html).  If you object to the adoption of this draft as a WG item, please respond to the list indicating why by 20150602.
