Yes, we also encountered the same restricting issue while developing.
Now there seems to be only a few remaining bits to be used. It is
definatively not a good thing for future developers who are planning
to use their own cipher suites.

Sounds nice. Some other extensible way than the current (one integer
containing the bitmask) is needed sooner or later.

Maybe it would be better to discuss the ideas in
this mailing list, so everyone can comment the ideas.
