I certainly agree on all your statements, but we cannot break current
of sha-256 and sha-512 for fixing the parameters issue.

-  ok to prepare Digest to be SF-ready
- ok if there's a way do describe the current Digest syntax with SF,
so that we can later obsolete non sf-binary algoritms
- not sure that fixing the parameters issue is a valid reason to
introduce SF now
