Looks good.

One extra thing, since it's in the same section of man page. Would it be possible to list the available DH group sizes explicitly?
While RFC5114  does list some parameters, it doesn't say which is which (e.g. doesn't say that the dh1 is 768bit, dh2 is 1024, etc.). Higher group sizes like 1536 bit or 2048 bit are even harder to find...
