Given that these are only preferences I don't see a reason to object
against swapping SHA256 with SHA512.
In general I would like to get rid of SHA224 and SHA384 because I can't
see any advantage in using them or _announcing_ that they are supported:
Both are truncated version of the other algos using a different IV.
They are similar like AES192 which is also rarely used. Note that gpg
will in any case _support_ all 4 algos.
However, dropping them 2.2 would not be good. Thus my suggestion for
2.2 would be:
SHA512 SHA256 SHA384 SHA224
and for 2.3:
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
