Addition of at least SHA-256 and Blake2 would prevent IH growing obsolescence, IMHO.

[BLAKE2] design goal was to replace the widely used, but broken, MD5 and SHA-1 algorithms in applications requiring high performance in software. BLAKE2 was announced on December 21, 2012. A reference implementation is available under CC0, the OpenSSL License, and the Apache Public License 2.0.
