I agree with your assessment. My comment was that perhaps this work 
needs to be a more targeted working group at the OIDF, where we can get 
the necessary collaboration of people who are specifically interested in 
multi-party federation, but not maybe to all the other stuff that is 
discussed in the main Connect working group.
