If it is necessary to define additional variants, INCITS now has a
OID of which T11 is using one ARC.  T10 could use another ARC if the
one provided by PKC is not precisely applicable.

Subject: Encryption Algorithm Identifier
For Encryption the suggestion has been made that it might be better to
use the algorithm identifier from PKCS than the Security identifier that
we just voted on in CAP.  It is a variable length self describing format
|from the Public Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS). 
ASN.1 AlgorithmIdentifier from PKCS  (OID's) 
ASN.1 - Abstract Syntax Notation One 
OID - Object Identifier 
Any thoughts?  If it does make better sense a change would have to be
made very rapidly so we don't get implementations and can remove what we
already put in.
