I cannot agree more. I do not see any real reason why returning all
the attributes again would be a "bad thing". I'm feeling more like
what has been described is trying to work around a problem that the RP
should be solving.
The server is not responsible for the client's state.
If someone actually needs this, one can extend the protocol and define
a new endpoint for this reason. I do not think this special behaviour
should be done on an existing well-defined endpoint.
In addition, I do not think this is in the scope of this
specification. It may be _related_ but I do not see it as a core/vital
part of this work.
