Agreed. This seems to follow the same basic procedure as OpenID specs:
someone drafts a proposal, and then the community argues about it for a
while until a compromise is reached and there is consensus.
I see no reason why published OpenID Foundation policies shouldn't
follow suit, since this approach has worked okay for specifications so far.
