I hate to nitpick, but I believe you meant Portage in that line.
However, great work on this GLEP, you've put forth some good solid
research into it.
I do hope that we don't intend on settling on SHA512 as the end all
solution as well. We should retain a method for bumping the hashing
algorithm used when the SHA-3 family becomes available.
