Final word on XRDS… for now

So while posting a comment to Phil’s blog on this thread I finally hit upon the thing that I have been trying to say in a clear concise way… Sorry you have had to watch me formulate this idea in real time.

The simple statement is this:

SEPs in XRDS must be considered self asserted claims and as such should not be trusted on their face. Service Providers should publish the mechanisms by which SEP claims should be validated to be about a specific subject (authenticated identifier). (ooo… I feel another spec coming).
