Re: Draft openPGP ECC formats

PGP would be strongly supportive of including an ECC draft within the charter of the WG. While we do not support ECC now, the lack of a draft certainly does not help any potential for supporting it in the future.

I've requested Dominikus edit his draft to conform to IETF guidelines, and resubmit it as a personal draft. Currently, further specification of ECC is not part of our charter, although it might be necessary in order for elliptic curves to be useful within OpenPGP.

Once his draft has been accepted as I-D, I would like your opinions on whether is should be included as a WG item. Are implementers utilizing ECC in their implementations?

I've asked Dominikus to elaborate his reasons to the WG for including his draft within our charter, once his draft has been accepted as an I-D. Please give his note and his draft careful consideration.
