JEP-0116 standardises on HMAC. The associated hash algorithm is
negotiated instead (since the hash needs to be negotiated anyway).

If any format is popular then we should add it to the JEP.
What is the standard name for that format? Are you refering to
I think we should include the SSH formats, if only because they are far
less complex than Generic/Base64-ASN.1's X.509 DER-encoded
SubjectPublicKeyInfo object (see RFC 1422).
