[Openid-specs-risc] subscription/enrolment - why do we need a receiver API for it?

I concur that at the RISC F2F there was agreement that the data plane and the control plane would be separate interfaces.  There was also agreement that connections were uni-directional and that if the two parties wanted bi-directional data exchange, they would establish two distinct uni-directional connections in opposite directions.

If it is a control plane mechanism that is changing state, then it is a command, and may have an error. Sure, we can ignore any error, but that is a subobtimal control plane mechanism.

Why all the pushback on a separate control plane Phil? Is it because you don’t want to write the spec?

I started this whole discussion after catching up with emails after a long while. Not sure there was any pushback, but sending user enrollment requests as regular SETs came up, I think Adam mentioned that, and I assumed there was some talk about merging the two channels and requiring full duplex.

At the RISC F2F we were talking about a separate control plane API and a data plane event stream. There was no discussion of mixing the two.

At the F2F Phil expressed concern over having to write a spec for a new REST API. I’m probing to see if that is what the issue is.
