Looks like we are using the word "identity" too loosely.
Sometimes, it seems it should be identifier instead of identity.

incoming tokens include its identity as the audience of the token." It
probably should be identifier.
I am going to do the pass through.
IMHO, it is better to avoid the use of layman's word "identity".
FYI, ISO and ITU-T defines "identity" as the "set of attributes about an
We should stick to that definition.
