Can I ask a really fundamental question:

Names like "newbus", "SMPng", "FAST_IPSEC" and similar grow really silly
over time, because the attribute they carry in their name gets outdated.

Once FAST_IPSEC replaces IPSEC, what is it faster than ?

Can we please drop the FAST_ prefix along with the old IPSEC when we
get to that point ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
