I have just contacted the people from IESG/IETF and James Manger from
Telstra, who is the one in charge of evaluating new entries to the Named
Information Hash Algorithm Registry.

The proposed new entries are:

ID    Hash Name String    Value Length    Reference    Status
9     sha3-224            224 bits        [FIPS 202]   current
10    sha3-256            256 bits        [FIPS 202]   current
11    sha3-384            384 bits        [FIPS 202]   current
12    sha3-512            512 bits        [FIPS 202]   current

In addition, I have recommended them to update the link for FIPS 180-4
from the March 2012 draft to the final Aug 2015 publication.

I will keep you updated with any progress.
