COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

After reading Sec 10.5, I was a little unclear how the client and auth server
necessarily achieve interoperability, but I think it's just an editorial fix.

If the server advertises that a signed object is required, then it cannot
communicate with a client that does not support the extension. But if the
object_required metadata is missing, then what is the metadata that tells the
client to use a signed object if it can?

IIUC the answer is that the server metadata includes the
request_object_signing_alg_values_supported and/or
request_object_encryption_alg_values_supported parameter in the metadata. It
might be helpful to spell that out here.

Is this correct?
