it sound like DH is never required:
If the server does not support DH, they may ignore the DH fields
in the request and reply exactly as to a non-DH request.
Is this correct? Servers are not required to support DH at all, and a
consumer requesting a DH session is only suggesting the use of DH,
regardless of whether the connection is otherwise protected from
