Thanks for the nudge @kaspar030 . To comment on the above:
> After some offline online discussion with @emmanuelsearch we decided to keep this the v1.
Just interested, what's the reasoning? We keep v1 until the non-draft RFC comes out, rather than updating several times? This seems reasonable to me.
> Version 3 of the draft explicitly calls is a "CBOR-based Firmware Manifest Serialisation Format". Despite this would you still like to have support for different serialization formats?

Pagel is also working on a binary serialization format and corresponding RFC:
https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/suit/documents/
On the mailing list there has been quite a lot of discussion about several potential formats. It's my understanding that there will come other formats. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) This is the main one atm though. What about keeping as is but calling the module suit_cbor? We can make it modular later when we wish to support other formats.

I also think it is cleaner to have this contribution focusing on getting the information from the manifest, with update application logic submitted later, as discussed offline.

Once these points are addressed I'm happy with the high level aspects.
