(1) Section 1.  Per '[RFC4345] specifies and allocates the "arcfour-128" and "arcfour-256" ciphers for SSH', RFC4345 seems to call these allocations “arcfour128” and “arcfour256” (no hyphen).

Don’t forget to schedule a management item on the telechat for moving 4345 to Historic.  (Never mind... I see the status-change doc now.)
