Authentication 2.0 Draft 9

These documents -- and having them on a wiki -- are extremely helpful. The
OASIS XRI and XDI TCs manage pretty much all their work using the OASIS wiki
and it works like a dream.

A few questions/suggestions:

1) I don't see the links you provided below appearing on the site
anywhere. IMHO it would be good to put them on the Specs page
( Then that one page would serve as a link to
all current OpenID specs, plus all planned specs (highly desirable).

2) Wikis make it easy for multiple authors to write to these pages, which is
especially helpful for issue/proposal pages. But it's not yet clear whether:

	a) You prefer just spec editors doing wiki editing, in which case
the pages should direct anyone who wants to provide input to use the mailing
lists or contact an editor, or
	b) You want other contributors to have direct access, in which case
it's not clear how you get an account on this wiki.

Subject: Authentication 2.0 Draft 9

I have added a document to the wiki listing the spec changes from 1.x.  .
A list of proposed changes is is also on the wiki at .   Dick has several 
proposals that he will be adding shortly.

The goal is to get all pending ideas out on the table, vet, debate,  
vote,  and get the 2.0 spec finalized this month.
