Yeah, it may well be just marketing. The one thing that gives me pause

the systems they have chosen to migrate to (Twofish, Skein), and
Schneier is one of the very few people to see the Snowden docs (or
some subset thereof).

Might be reading too much into things but...

Jon may be on this list; I know he's on one or more of the others I
follow.
