Oh, beautiful! There's a very good spec:
The code is named properly (after a noise - "brontide"):
They're doing Noise_XK_secp256k1_ChaChaPoly_SHA256, so this introduces
a new pattern and a new curve into use.
They specify symmetric-key update in the transport phase. If people
are going to keep wanting this we might consider saying something
about it in the Noise spec.
