@vijaybh @selfissued I don't have any problem with using shorter 
strings for these algorithms, but we do need to be clear what set of 
strings are valid.

I believe it was always incorrect to add SHA-256, etc. to the IANA JWS
 registry because S256, etc. had a different set of inputs than HS256,
 etc., and there was nothing in the registry to distinguish the two 
kinds of names. If you still want to use shorter names, we'll need to 
make a new registry.
