What is the fallback/recovery behavior when a hashing algorithm is 
specified that the user agent doesnt' recognise?

It would seem that this mechanism needs some sort of negotiation so that 
the client and server can agree on a suitable hashing algorithm or fail 
in a user-friendly manner if a suitable algorithm is not available.
