@smuellerDD I think this is almost ready; could you take a look? I've also adjusted some function/enum names in the linked gdoc.

A main caveat is that GnuTLS already prohibits most of the invalid uses of crypto primitives (such as RSA key shorter than 2048 bits) in FIPS mode and returns an error; this is the case of "Group 4" in the [IG](https://csrc.nist.gov/CSRC/media/Projects/cryptographic-module-validation-program/documents/fips%20140-3/FIPS%20140-3%20IG.pdf). Therefore checks for "approved"/"non-approved" checks are only found in particular operations (e.g., uses of Edwards curves; I know they are being approved, but currently only prohibited by other means: crypto-policies).
