Sigh... More knobs to turn for TLS. Personally I really hope TLS1.3 dramatically cuts down this ciphersuite parameter explosion, but in the meantime this is only making the status quo very marginally worse and the specific ciphers seem ok. For the authors: that's not actionable, and not a dig at you, but more at how we (the IETF as a whole) have allowed this situation to develop over the last decade. I do understand that your use-case is as real as many others. Nit: I'd suggest using BSI on the title page for Manfred's affiliation.
