The Diffie Hellman part of the spec is somewhat ambiguous at the moment:

. It is not clear whether PKCS#3 or X.942 should be used. The reference
  suggests the latter; the public key encoding suggests the former.

. Keying material generation is somewhat ambiguous; the examples suggest
  algorithm first, the language suggests ZZ first; the examples suggest
  the counter is one byte, the language suggests two hexadecimal digits.

Any guidance so we can nail down DH interop?

Thanks, Merlin
