Hi Dino,

it’s fine with me to leave the details to rfc6040 but then also the details in the current text should be removed (because giving only half the details really doesn’t seem right).

However, I totally disagree with your comment on providing details that are not implemented. If they are not implemented correctly, it might even be more important to spell them out in this document, so implementors have chance to update their (future) implementation to do the correct thing. Having deployed implementations that are non standard-conform always happens and in this case it is probably not specifically problematic as it doesn’t impact interoperability. However, it is important though that the spec is correct.

Anyway it doesn’t matter point being that it should specify the same things as RFC6040 does not matter what other have ofter because RFC6040 is the IETF-consensus doc how describing how to handle this.
