One issue with SHA-3 is that the fingerprints are going to be very long. How should these be displayed to the user? Hex strings seem unsuitable for this task, and I think any new standard should recommend that fingerprints be displayed in some other way - probably using a different base.

SHA3 is defined for a variety of hash sizes. Using SHA3 does not imply a long fingerprint.
