The keygen element ought to be extended to support elliptic curve keys. This is
especially important in light of NIST guidelines (see pg 63, 66 in
http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/toolkit/documents/SP800-57Part1_3-8-07.pdf (pg
63, pg 66) in
http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/ST/toolkit/documents/SP800-57Part1_3-8-07.pdf).
Elliptic Curve Cryptography is already integrated into Firefox, IE and Apache
and many other products (see
