I believe [1] now has the text (please confirm). However, with respect to 
Merlin asking, "This looks good, although would it be too much to ask for 
it to be called #rsa-oaep-mgf1-sha1?" I fear it would be. 

There are existing implementations using the existing identifier 
"". I fear the change make 
cause existing instances to fail. If we believe it worthwhile, we can 
create a new namespace but I expect there would be opposition to that.
