"yet"? I didn't realize there was a deadline. I'm traveling and
jet-lagged (California -> London). BTW, if anyone here will be at the
IETF meeting this coming week, look me up.

As I said to Arnold a little while ago, SP 800-63B was published last
summer after considerable public comment, and I do not expect it to be
changed (except possibly for small errata) until it is ready for another
revision, with more public comment, etc.

I haven't time to review all the yescrypt detail you provided right now.
