I believe that was already discussed and there were two different levels 
of abstractions re ciphersuites/defaults. That is, I think, still the 
case. Is it not?

Regardless, I'll bring that option up with the Security ADs and see if 
we can find a quick way to solve this.

    cheers,

However, we have a good history with working with IANA over such registries. Would anyone in the WG be opposed to modifying the spec so that the registry for algorithms in WebCrypto was run by IANA?
