JEP 329: ChaCha20 and Poly1305 Cryptographic Algorithms

is there any reason that the cipher and and the tls inclusion is split 
into two separate jep?
And the second question is why is there no way for user to add new 
cipher suites that can
be used in the tls protocol? Since i extend jdk8 with chacha for tls i 
know that it would be
no big issue to add an API that allow to add new CipherSuites this would 
be an great improvement
if the TLS-Protocol and the CIPHER-Implementation is more loose coupled.
Also an plugin system for TLS-Hello Extensions would be great.
