Are these modes compatible with the deflate algorithm, that is,
can the generic deflate uncompress the output of these modes and
vice versa, can these modes uncompress the output of the generic

If they're all compatible, then you should just use the "deflate"
algorithm name and use different driver names to differentiate them.
But if they're not compatible then the modes should have distinct
algorithm names.
