David Benjamin noted that we really need to decide whether PSS was
something that we should have supported in TLS 1.2.  We can't have a
situation where there are two implementations of 1.3 that for some
reason have 1.3 disabled where they disagree whether PSS is
acceptable.

I have opened a PR that makes it clear that PSS is defined for TLS 1.2.
