[Openid-specs-mobile-profile] Account porting example updates

Hi James,

I think the spec is in really good shape. Thank you for bringing it forward!

I’ve got two questions:

- Why is GET instead of POST for the checking call? GET requires the RP to send the encrypted port token, a credential, as URL query parameter. I think it would be better to send it as body parameter in a POST request.

- I haven’t found an explanation of why the Old OP should check the sector id or redirect uri host of the RP. As far as I remember this is a further mean to ensure the same RP is calling on both ends, the new and the old OP. Would it make sense to add this explanation?

best regards,

I’m not sure what to do about that. Perhaps the corrected examples are a minor change that can be reflected with a comment and updated links on the blog entry about the review/vote (and WG page)? Or perhaps a 2nd Implementer’s Draft is reviewed/voted-on later with these changes and any others that the current review flushes out?
