Not so much a conflict as a let's-not-be-hasty. According to the spec,
it must be an ordered preference list, but the other guy isn't required
to treat it as anything other than a capability set.
I understand GnuPG treats it as a preference list. I'm in favor of it
being treated as a preference list. However, the other guy is free to
interpret our preferences as being simply a capability set. This makes
me think we should be cautious about assuming he will view them as a
preflist: the spec explicitly allows him to treat it as a capset.
I don't think this is very controversial, really.
