+1 on excluding ECC for the time being. My idea was to include non-ECC and ECC configurations and write a clear statement as to the current research involving elliptic curves and their standardization process (which seems to be heavily flawed - if you believe djb et al.). I guess sysadmins keeping track of ECC security and the ongoing discussion can safely add ECC ciphersuites, the problem still being that a lot of services and clients do not support black/whitelisting of curves or do only support particular NIST curves.

..i’m still not sure if we should completely refrain from mentioning ECC configurations in this paper.
