I would be happy to clarify anything. In the IETF tradition, you can send
text. If you send patches, I will apply them.
I just want to be clear that you want me to clarify that the Application
Programming Interface is a set of requirements on an interface that
They aren't constraints on the application, or on the operating environment.
They are constraints are the interface only. And we aren't creating an ABI
either, or promising that a change in the implementation of the API won't
require a recompilation of the applications. (It is certainly is a nice
feature if you have, but it certainly isn't required)

Keys never traverse this API. That is a requirement.
Where the IPsec "kernel" puts keys is it's own business.
