Indeed, however the governing standard document, FIPS 180-4, has yet to be
updated. It was last revised in March, 2012.

Other references also still updating, an OID needs assigned, etc...

Having an algorithm alone does not a standard make. NIST doesn't appear to be
in a hurry, why should we jump the gun? Wait for FIPS 180-5.
