Section 4.2. says:

This problem exists with any negotiation approach, but 
generic frameworks exacerbate it by encouraging the application 
protocol author to just specify the framework rather than think hard 
about the appropriate underlying mechanisms, particularly since the 
mechanisms can very widely in the degree of security offered.

This problem exists with any negotiation approach, but 
generic frameworks exacerbate it by encouraging the application 
protocol author to just specify the framework rather than think hard 
about the appropriate underlying mechanisms, particularly since the 
mechanisms can vary widely in the degree of security offered.
