"crypto ident iff|gq|mv" exist, and are (insuficiently) documented.
"crypto iff|gq|mv" don't exist, but are documented in authopt.html.

How can a ntp-dev Host serve GQ, and be an IFF client of a 800e3 Server?

Having ntpkey_gq_Host, ntpkey_iff_Server, and "crypto ident iff" does
indeed serve GQ, but tries to use GQ with its upstream. The daemon
doesn't find ntpkey_gq_Server, falldowns reading ntpkey_gq_Host, and
fails on "crypto_gq: invalid filestamp 3340702253".
