Hi all,

I incorporated Brian’s and Vladimir’s comments/proposals.

Here is a list of the changes:
- moved state into the JWT
- adopted processing rules to logic as defined below
- added response mode values to be able to distinguish query, fragment and form post encoding 
- added form post encoding
- added client and server metadata

Take a look: https://bitbucket.org/openid/fapi/src/155-JWT-Secured-Authorization-Response-Mode/Financial_API_JWT_Secured_Authorization_Response_Mode.md

Looking forward for your feedback. 

kind regards,
