Thanks for responding here.

I have been preparing an Internet Draft on how to build an ED25519 pki.  
I know have the choice of:

building my own 1.1.1 pre9 for testing.
Wait to push the draft out until 1.1.1 is fully released.
Fudge the draft by adding yet another caveat (yes there is a caveat 
section that I developed in creating the ECDSA pki draft) that the 
commands are for how it is suppose to work in production 1.1.1, not what 
I had to do in the prerelease.

Decisions decisions.  Thing is I want the draft out so I can push for 
EDDSA support in IEEE 802.1AR with the next meeting early Sept.
