                 John said that the one thing that we could potentially
drop as MTI is the "request" parameter

                              while keeping "request_uri" as MTI

I thought that what we'd discussed was actually the other way around?
"Request" would be MTI but "request_uri" with the fetching and whatnot was
considered significantly more scary? It's entirely possible that I missed
some key part of this conversation, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

I was not in the call,  but from our previous discussions, I believe it is
the request_uri that we should keep. There are privacy and other reasons
for that.


                Tim and Justin felt that UserInfo should be MTI for all
non-self-issued OPs

                              It makes client code much easier

                              It's actually only required to return the
"sub" claim

                              We decided to make this required for other
than for non-self-issued OPs

John described it in a way that I think is actually cleaner: If you issue
an access_token, you have to have a UserInfo Endpoint to use it at. This
effectively says that anybody who just wants to deal in ID-token land (like
self-issued) doesn't have to deal with UserInfo Endpoints.
