[Openid-specs-ab] acr values

Sure the nice thing about URI is that people won't confuse http://example.com/auth_level/0 with http://bar.com/auth_level/0 as they may mean completely different things. 

If people want to do interfederation the registry is there to point to the agreed policy. 

In the local case putting a document at the URI to explain the local policy to help developers is a good idea but not required.

Perhaps more examples in the documentation would be helpful. Are you proposing that a domain could have an acr value such as "http://example.com/auth_level/0" ?
