New issue 1339: JWT Handling of edge case VCs

David Chadwick:

It is expected that the majority of VCs will hold attributes about a single subject and consequently have a single subject ID. When this is secured as a JWT, the subject ID is turned into the sub claim. However, there are some exceptions.

1. Bearer VCs have no subject ID
2. Some VCs may have two or more subject IDs e.g. a marriage certificate.

How are bearer credentials and multi-subject credentials to be converted into a JWT for inclusion in the VP? What value should the sub claim contain?
