This was in a joint DHS+NIST talk today at the Third PQC Standardization Conference. There was similarly weird please-don't-implement-post-quantum-crypto-now messaging from other people at NIST yesterday. Supposedly videos from the whole conference will be online this month.

Coordinated bullshit from the U.S. government re post-quantum crypto: Don't roll out post-quantum crypto now even if you can, because maybe then you'll lose "time" (throughput!) later switching to something else, and we don't want to lose "time" (latency!) in protecting users.

That’s quite a surprising remark! Would you mind sharing the full reference or excerpt where you found it?
