Your comment addresses the confusion with the wiki but doesn’t really address the confusion that implementer’s will have.  I suspect that an example or two of what Opbs might consist of would be helpful.  A sentence or two about what properties the Opbs would like be a good idea too.

                                                                -- Mike

session 4.1. Opbs is unclear and conflict with "session management memo" on wiki<https://bitbucket.org/openid/connect/issue/872/session-41-opbs-is-unclear-and-conflict>


The wiki page is just a memo before jotting down the spec., so do not rely on it. The opbs is a blob that stores the state of the browser at the OP. This specification does not define how to. It is up to the OP implementation. What this specification specifies is the request and response to the postMessage.

The code example in the spec is there just to depict what an OP may have to do to implement the feature. As it is clearly stated, it is a non-normative example.
