I have a similar initial reaction to Erik's. Adding another URL that effectively is just another user portal, but meant to be used at certain times, adds a lot of complexity. I'm certainly not ruling out adding such a key as need arises, but I'd hesitate to make it part of the initial set.

Particularly, if we start seeing the "venue URL" be the main landing page we redirect people to once they're logged it, it kind of makes sense to let the user portal be the status/remediation/payment page.

But that might suggest a boolean capability, rather than a new URL (remediation-supported={true|false})?
