#31: Add extractability field for JWK


Comment (by michael.jones@microsoft.com):

 This seems significantly underspecified.  For one thing, extractability is
 often not simply a Boolean value.  For instance, the Windows key store has
 different properties for whether a key may be extracted in wrapped form
 (NCRYPT_ALLOW_EXPORT_FLAG) and whether it may be extracted as an
 unprotected key (NCRYPT_ALLOW_PLAINTEXT_EXPORT_FLAG).

 The good news is that, should WebCrypto want/need to fully specify an
 extractability key property, they can do so in a WebCrypto document and
 register the field in the JSON Web Key Parameters Registry.  This requires
 no action on the part of the JOSE working group.

 Therefore, I believe that this should be closed as Won't-Fix.
