[Openid-specs-ab] Request amr ?

You request a acr, and that can have whatever rules for acceptable AMR you like. 

Requesting a specific AMR is not scalable.  The first time you add a new AMR even if it is better things break unless it is a small federation that is configured out of band.  

If that is the case and you don't care about identity proofing etc.  Then just map acr to classes of AMR. 

AMR should mostly be treated as extra information on top of ACR.
