comment RSA: Letting $p$ and $q$ have different bit-size
@Ricky Demer: Excellent remark! Standards, and practice by banks, tend to be below the state-of-the-art. E.g. French bank Smart Cards have been issued with 321-bit RSA static signatures way into this century. No to mention ad-hoc RSA padding (ISO/IEC 9796-2 scheme 1), still in use (the fact that the best known attack requires chosen messages helps the status-quo).

comment RSA: Letting $p$ and $q$ have different bit-size
@ratchet freak: Yes, but by the same two arguments I use, that's not useful. That's even counterproductive to some degree: what you propose can HELP an easy variant of Fermat factoring more than not specifying anything.
