            Bug ID: 25717
           Summary: Provide informative text noting when a parameter in an
                    SPKI/PKCS8/JWK is ignored
           Product: Web Cryptography
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Cryptography API Document
          Assignee: sleevi@google.com
          Reporter: sleevi@google.com
                CC: public-webcrypto@w3.org

When importing/exporting keys, some parameters will always be respected (eg:
"alg" in JWK, the Algorithm OID in SPKI/PKCS8), but other parameters MAY be
ignored.

For example:
- When importing JWK, unknown parameters are ignored, rather than fatal.
- When importing SPKI/PKCS8, some parameters in the algorithm field may not be
checked:
  - For example, the saltLength field of the RSASSA-PSS-params is not checked,
nor is the trailerField

This is mostly to call attention to the fact that some parameters are
explicitly NOT handled, and not simply spec omissions.
