Well at least I hope so, I added a paragraph on AEAD in the ciphersuite section. AES-GCM isn’t the only AEAD scheme (although possibly the only one available on VPNs due to patents). People should really read the technical section if they want to understand the document.

That’s also why I don’t think that we should put the practical settings first (and have gotten similar feedback from people I forwarded the paper to).
