Re: I have a technical idea/change for the ECC draft

 This is one reason why I believe in options. If someone wants to do
 SuiteB ECC but with Camellia and Whirlpool, we should not be
 restricting that at the standards level.

there is no such thing as "SuiteB ECC but with Camellia and Whirlpool"

Suite B *is*:
384-ecc, sha384, aes256 - cleared for up to TOP SECRET use
256-ecc, sha256, aes128 - cleared for up to SECRET use

with both also being suitable for non-classified (sensitive) use.

What you *could* have is "_OpenPGP ECC_ with Camellia and
Whirlpool _at equivelent strength to the SuiteB cipher suites_"
