In a perfect world, that would be lovely. I guess that some people are
used to having to distinguish hashes based on the width of the digest,
as everyone "knows" that the commonly used hashes/checksums
(MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, CRC32) have different sizes.

It's of course not a future-proof or robust assumption.
