Dear Chair & List,

To me it looks close to ridiculous publicly downplaying https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-cavage-http-signatures/ without providing an alternative.

If nobody within the OpenID community is even interested in this matter, why the concern?

Please provide a plan on how to resolve this issue, or simply accept that https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-cavage-http-signatures/ is the de-facto standard for (at least) Open Banking.  The industry in general (as proven by this case) does not seems to have any major issues with de-facto standards.

If OpenID/FAPI intend to wait another year addressing this issue, the de-facto status will be cemented.  Personally I see no problems if that would be the case.  The authors also seem open to input.
