Ok then, even better :)

One drawback of approach 2 and the agreement that all iana hash names
are ok as elements is the potential clash between hash names and
element names in the namespace of the protocol using the hashes. It's
unlikely that Jingle will ever have an element 'sha-1', but still,
theoretically ...
