Hi Tero,

Right, but with some restrictions (e.g. HASH Payload in QM must go before 
other Payloads).

Yes, of course. Thanks for catching.

And in -01 draft I've added one more use case:

   o  User wants to get some simple action from remote device.  Consider
      garage door opener: it must authenticate user to open the door,
      but it is not necessary for the user to authenticate the door
      opener.  In this case one-way authentication is sufficient.

In this example there is no harm if garage door opener
fills in its ID Payload - it need not be anonymous.
