I'm supportive in general, let's see how this turns out. Not surprising
though will be that I noticed additional CCM cipher-suites, as I
currently have a draft on OCB mode I'm not really supportive of that.
There should be a block-cipher mode that also offers considerable
performance for non-AESNI architectures - CCM was introduced because of
patents on OCB, we seem to have resolved this issue by now. At least for
TLS.

DSS should be dropped. And I figure that a PSK handshake (TLS_PSK_*)
will be required by the embedded/IoT world, as noted by others before.
