Larry, Mark,

It occurs to me that it must be very unlikely that any apps using the
MSFT variant of tls-unique are doing authentication after TLS
re-negotiation.  We already have confirmation that in the HTTP/Negotiate
case that never happens.  If so, might you be willing to fix your
implementation to always use the initial handshake?  That would help
remove two pieces of complexity from -09: a) security considerations with
regard to the TLS re-negotiation bug, b) interoperability considerations
with regard to the channel binding synchronization problem.
