I thought we'd firmly put that to bed already as something we were NOT
doing, because it's very clear that:

1) JOSE is generally concerned with cipher SUITES, not algorithms
2) JOSE algorithms do not reflect all of the necessary inputs to
execute algorithms

Kicking it to JOSE is something that I definitely would object to.
