--- Comment #2 from Johan Eklund <johan.eklund at primekey.se> ---
I really appreciate the clarification regarding why this was removed, since I
failed to figure out why.

But isn't it the actual implementation of the EC that is patented and hence,
the curves could be known by the JDK without infringing and always allowed for
the PKCS#11 provider where the actual operations takes place in (free or
non-free) vendor drivers and hardware?
