And we have the issues of no one understanding processing a JWK

Additionally, we're leaning toward picking JWK because it's a raw key format as opposed to a certificate format, which has signing authorities and all other manner of overhead that aren't directly used by the protocols under discussion.

The specs currently support x509 and JWK format for publishing public keys but is silent on which must be supported.
There may be interop problems related to cryptographic aspects of OpenID due to lack of common support between client and server.

Can you provide the rationale or a pointer to the rationale?

This is to inform everyone that the Working Group has decided to make JWK support mandatory for both the client and server.
Feedbacks welcome.
