I'll be running test looking for intolerances like this over the Alexa top 1 
million next month.

For now I have a probe that adds values 0x0003, 0x0004, 0x0700, 0x0703 and 
0x0704 at the end of the list of algorithms.

Would you suggest doing something more with it?

(I will be looking for key_share extension intolerance as a whole too)
