[noise] expected length of messages during handshake

I’ve recently started implementing NoiseSocket in Python noiseprotocol.
First thought: would be nice to have at least default proposed contents for
negotiation data. Otherwise we’ll likely end up with implementations freely
following structure in Alexey’s go-noisesocket (or e.g. mine if I decide to
come up with my own). Obviously, usage of this default structure won’t be
necessary, nor explicitly suggested.
