> RFC4034 5.3 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4034#section-5.3) says this is allowed, pointing to a list in appendix A.1 (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4034#appendix-A.1).
> The appendix lists RSASHA1 but not 7 and 8 - so it looks like NSD uses the mnemonic when 4034 allows it, and uses the number otherwise.

Additionally, http://www.iana.org/assignments/dns-sec-alg-numbers/dns-sec-alg-numbers.xml lists mnenomics for the newer algorithms.

Kind regards,
