One issue with SHA-3 is that the fingerprints are going to be very

using a different base.
SHA3 is defined for a variety of hash sizes. Using SHA3 does not imply a
I would argue for SHA-3-384 and then possible truncation.
Keccak of different sizes is pretty much implemented as internal
truncation anyway (of a large sponge structure), plus there is no
different initialization vectors as for SHA-2 for different hash sizes.
The KeyIDs are the truncation of the fingerprint already.
