Wondering if anybody, especially the original OIDF Board and any
contributor's to the OpenID Auth 2.0 spec could comment on this question for

*Is OpenID Discovery, as seen in section 7.3 of the Auth spec, optional?
More specifically, is the information returned by discovery meant to be
Authoritative for a particular OpenID or OP Endpoint, or is it merely meant
to be "Informative".


ps - for those interested, see the other mail-list thread entitled, "DISCUSSION
relating to OpenID Discovery 2.1" for more fine-grained details surrounding
this question and it's possible answers.
