Not sure about that. There are things that are "recommended" like the dynamic registration endpoint, I don't understand why this is recommended as a lot of folks still don't do this. There are security considerations about all the information that is in the discovery that have not been addressed.

It's the OAuth-specific subset of what's already widely deployed.  Nothing was invented - just subsetted.

I think it's already as simple as possible unless the working group decides to remove even more functionality (which it can obviously do).

I also think we are way far from last call (and surprised to see last call issued) on this document as it is still very complex for something that should be very simple

Thanks for your feedback, Phil. As you have seen I had issued a WGLC prior to your message based on the claim from the authors that they believe the document is finished.

We will, of course, take all reviews into account and see where we are with the discovery spec. I, as the shepherd, will also do my review and I encourage many working group members to also take a look at the document and to provide their input.
