JEP 287: SHA-3 Hash Algorithms

This is good news. Could the JEP talk about non-octet input length? If I read SHA3 correctly it will produce different hashes for 5- or 8-bit input. This means you cannot pad the input to byte boundaries and you would have to specify a length parameter to byte[] based doFinal().

Since the JEP mandates the NIST test vectors I guess the functionality cannot be skipped, as those specify odd input messages.

With the recent work on HKDF is therr also a plan to provide a XOF API for sponge?
