I think it would be useful to have this work adopted and eventually
standardized, various protocols/APIs seem to be building on blind signature
style schemes, and having a draft here would help in trying to unify or at
least provide guidance for how to use blind signatures in a more consistent
manner. In the PrivacyPass space, this sort of scheme might be useful for
some of the use cases that need public verifiability, where there's
currently still a gap on how PrivacyPass implements public verifiability.

Generally supportive of this draft, and would be happy to help give
feedback on it.
