Great. I'm comfortable with it any way you and David and the other active
editors want to manage it. I always prefer providing access to a wiki rather
than not because it makes it easy to go in and make small updates and change
errors even if the major lifting is handled by a set of wiki gardeners who
are intimately involved.

I'll just wait for posts by whomeever is managing the wiki about how they'd
like to proceed.

I don't have privs to edit the specs.bml page,  I know that David is 
working on reorganizing the site, and possibly changing wiki software ?  
I have no problems linking it anywhere, I originally added it to the 
openid wiki home page ( ), and to 
svn.    The svn copy should go away if the wiki copy gets maintained.

I'm happy with anyone adding value to the document.   99% of the content 
came from a document Josh Hoyt put together earlier.   Anyone can get 
access (I believe) at .
