I didn't see any consensus that we have to implement all possible 
combinations, but rather that the protocol has enough options to implement any 
combinations that make sense and probably many that aren't interesting.

As Richard suggested, if we wanted to implement NTS-KE on -4 and NTP on -6, 
the syntax would be to add a -4 or -6 between ask/request and the 
name/address.  I don't see any reason to implement the ask/request options yet.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
