            Bug ID: 27447
           Summary: Inconsistent use of "raw" format for EC keys
           Product: Web Cryptography
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Cryptography API Document
          Assignee: sleevi@google.com
          Reporter: ericroman@google.com

ECDH is described as having a "raw" format for import/export. However ECDSA is
not specced as having a "raw" format.

This seems inconsistent from an implementation standpoint since the same
description of "raw" could apply to ECDSA's EC keys.

Seems like either both EC key types should support "raw", or neither.
