Re: [smime] [Technical Errata Reported] RFC5084 (4774)

I do not think that we can change the DEFAULT value associated with these 
OIDs.  Changing the meaning of an absent aes-ICVlen will result in too many 
interoperability problems.

Yeah, I'm aware of it and I understand your concern.
 However, we could put out a very short RFC that updates RFC 5084 to 
recommend the use of 16 octet authentication tags in all situations.  

Thanks for doing this :) It's SGTM.

Are you willing to help write?
