Open Issues     
    #593: Standard: redirect_uri registration & matching
            There is still no clear consensus on how to handle the matching of 
the redirect_uri value.
            This issue is deferred pending more feedback.

    #595: Discovery 2 - No means of discovery without web server for domain
            Current discovery mechanism relies on a web server at the domain to 
host a .well-known file.
            Virtual domains or email only providers do not have a web server at 
the domain.
            Possible solutions :
                1) Use DNS to lookup MX record
                2) Require a web server at the domain
               The above solutions may be too optimistic
            Pam suggested solution # 3 which is performing a GET on the domain 
first and if that fails then perform a GET
            on the result obtained from a discovery of the domain.
            Solution 3 seems most plausible to the members present.
            Since WebFinger is still a questionable work item for the OAuth-Apps 
group, it is suggested a new spec called
            called Simple Web Finger (or something similar) be written and which 
profiles a version of WebFingers.
            This issue is assigned to John in care of Pam.
