Another issue is that SP800-57 states:

> immediately to the destroyed state.

While the test case requires the server to hold on to a private signature key in the deactivated state in the interval between the revoke and the destroy request. A minimal change to avoid any interop issues here is to change the cryptographic usage mask from Sign to some other usage, such as key transport.

To clarify our position, the objection is not that the key lifecycle profile outlines non-interoperable behaviour like failing to revoke a public key on compromise of the private key. The objection is that this non-interoperable behaviour is listed as mandatory.
