While I like sf-binary, actual digest-algorithms define their own serialization
method (in this case it's accidentally the same of structured headers) but other
algorithms use eg. integer.

To support SF we could say that digest-algorithms like sha-256 and
sha-512 should be supported
in both sf-binary and the traditional token format.

I don't know if this can bring confusion or not though.
