I don't think it's a blocker at all, but I do think the term
normalization should happen before the next release, since I think we
should change "try-decrypt" -> "decrypt", which would affect things
already in master.  But I very much hope this series will land before
the next release, in which case I think it's fine to wait to do the
normalization after this series lands.
