That strikes me as an overly-conservative reading of the rules, but
it's been some time since I was involved in this stuff.  After all,
there is no key in a hash function. Notification was required for open
source, or a commodity classification for a product that had general
encryption facilities.

If the notification for hash is (still?) required, I believe you can
do it now via a simple phone call. To anyone.  #thanks_prism.
