That's a part which I think is the most questionable in terms of policy. How can we have an implementation which supports GOST but enables it conditionally. For example debian or fedora may want to support GOST but not enable it by default (i.e., enable it via a crypto policy). The reason is that this is a national standard, not widely accepted and enabling by default will trigger pushback to the whole effort of gost support. 

What are the options we have here?
