Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: In principle I agree, but I've no idea what the spec should say
here. If you could provide suitable text, that would be great. What is needed
is the text that would be put in the source where the spec currently has the
text "tech-crypto" commented out.
