But only if you want to eliminate TripleDES, whose key size is 112 
bits. No one counts the parity bits as meaningful.

Yes, I'm being picky about this. As we have seen from IKEv1, sloppy 
wording which "everybody" understands at the time the RFC is issued 
becomes confusing and leads to lack of interoperability within a few 
short years.
