It looks like this wasn't properly updated in -09:

   "No new cipher suites are required to use OpenPGP keys.  All
   existing cipher suites defined in [TLS] that support a compatible,
   with the key, key exchange method can be used in combination with
   OpenPGP keys."

We should remove the "defined in [TLS]" part so that OpenPGP keys
can be used with, for example, RFC4132 and RFC4162.

Best regards,
Pasi
