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

(2.1) "...can use any signing algorithm." I presume there ought to be some
qualifiers on allowed algorithms?

(4) and (5) "This specification
   does not provide a mechanism for identifying a specific key as the
   one used to sign JWT access tokens."

I don't understand; there's a key ID right there in the token header?

(4) I presume it's important that any resouree server rejection of the token
should be constant-time. Is this somewhere in the RFC tree, or do we need to
explicitly say it here and/or in Security Considerations?
