Hi all,

New values for core types like TLS HandshakeType and ContentType don't
happen very often, so I thought people might be interested to know that
draft-ietf-perc-srtp-ekt-diet (currently in IESG evaluation) is allocating
a HandshakeType, to carry key information used to encrypt SRTP media key
Obviously "it's never too late to change until the RFC is published", but I
think there would need to be some pretty serious issues in order to change
it at this point, so this is expected to just be an "FYI".
