[WebCrypto Key Discovery] Algorithm names in named keys


While implementing the WebCrypto Key Discovery API I wondered what the intended behaviour of getkeysByName() was related to the returned Algorithm property of the returned keys.

Suppose that the key is an RSA key, should I then return a NamedKey for every Algorithm that uses this type of key. Which might be a long list (RSAES-PKCS1-v1_5, RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5, RSA-PSS, RSA-OAEP), but probably is the only valid option, because the keyUsage flags may be different for some of the algorithms.

Kind regards,
