So far, the feedbacks that I got are:

For the main spec:

* Make 8.3 and 8.4 optional so that there could be two leg style request
 -> I am not sure if this should be in AB as there is no "artifact"
involved then.
     Perhaps it is better to save it for Connect or CX?

* _url and _uri are mixed. Understand that the authors made careful
  selection of the terms, but it may be too much. Better standardize on _uri
 -> OK to standardize on _uri ?

For the signature spec (JSS):

* Try to Unify with JWT for the Web Token serialization and signature:
-> As I understand, the main deltas are:
   * Whether to use short names as in JWT or long name as in Facebook.
   * Whether to have sig_params so that it can support multiple
signers and keys.
   * Whether to have "payload" or just inserting signature parameters
to the original JSON Object.

For JSON serialization of JSS:

* Whether to use "dictionary" as in the current proposal or "array"
which simplifies bunch of things.

For JWT serialization:

* Whether to allow multiple signatures by sig1.sig2.sig3. ... . payload style.

Please indicate your preferences.
