Good catch.  It appears that ikev2-algorithms-01 is in error:
PRF_AES128_CBC is not defined in draft-ietf-ipsec-aes-cbc-05, and I
don't see any drafts where it is defined.  So we need to modify
ikev2-algorithms to point at a (currently non-existent) I-D, and we
need to find a volunteer to quickly gin up an I-D which defines

Barbara and I believe that this shouldn't hold up the IETF last call
for draft-ietf-ipsec-algorithms, since writing up this PRF AES I-D
should be something that can be done quickly, however, with the
dangling reference the algorithms document will stall when it hits the
RFC editor, so we will need to plug this reference quickly.
