 There is no suggestion that the OTP is a viable proposition in main

Without copying you whole posting, let me quickly say that you do
grasp much of the matters you mention, especially in another way that
those who want everything simplified to binary related algorithms are
in effect throwing out the baby with the bath water.

There you go adacrypt. The only endorsement you can get is also from
someone as cryptographically challenged as you.

Preaching an exclusive understanding in an inclusive field means that
you are limited by your own self-induced prejudices.  There is a place
for binary but it is only a little flower in a grand bouquet that
includes everything cryptographic. Be a specialist in walking the
plank if you will but periodic splashes mean more that it is fragile
as a route.

Succinct. - adacrypt
