[Openid-specs-ab] Syntax for requesting an element of a structured claim

Every claim request allows a JSON object, so you can define a comparison for a specific claim.

What we don’t have is a general syntax across claims.

You could define group to support something like

"group”: { “values": [“Managers”] , “essential”: true } 

That would only return a authentication if the person had the managers value as part of the groups claim.

However I would recommend using SCIM for something like that rather than overloading the user_info endpoint with duplicate claims.
