I'm not sure I put this in the description, but the spec itself changed
the variable names in between 4.0-b1 and later.  In the initial public
draft, the names were "key-size" and "cipher-suite" (with dashes).  They
are now "key_size" and "cipher_suite" (with underscores), consistent with
all of the other request attribute names created by the container.
