OAuth Guru's,

I know you are all going to approve this AMR spec anyway, but I'd just 
like to dissent. I think this specification is useless, and potentially 
harmful.

Just as an example--two domains that use "face" as the amr probably have 
totally different algorithms, sensitivities, training, and identity 
management processes that contribute to the significance of this value. 
So rather than interoperability, this standard just sets up domains for 
miscommunication.

If it doesn't serve interoperabilty, what use case does this standard 
solve?

I think a bad quick and dirty solution is worse than no solution at all. 
If I had a vote, I'd definitely vote against this one.

- Mike
