I have a question to ask before starting IETF LC. I don't
care much what answer you provide but we will be asked
later and I don't recall it being discussed here, so let's
get it out of the way:

This says there are no IANA actions, which is consistent
with how e.g. export ciphersuites were handled I think.
But would the WG like to add a column saying "deprecated"
or similar to [2]?

My assumption is the answer is "no" or at least "not in
this document" so unless the chairs tell me to hold off
again I'll start IETF LC tomorrow. (OTOH, a part of me
would be happy to see a draft that deprecated a whole
nice big pile of ciphersuites;-)
