It'd actually be a good idea to delink specific encryption and hash
algorithms from 4871bis - so that people can use as strong an
algorithm as they like .. possibly specify an "at least sha256" with a
note that points to somewhere you can read up on a balance between
strong crypto and usability / scalability in large deployments.
