Review and Consensus
Version -01 went through WGLC. Changes suggested by the WG
participants were mostly editorial. There were three substantive

IANA for "Identity" shall not be zero.
(2) That we will not use the pre-hashed version of the EdDSA
function (same decision made by TLS and Curdle working groups)
(3) That we will use a null context (or context-free Ed25519) for
IKE (same decision reached in TLS and Curdle working groups)
The resulting document represents WG consensus.
