As mentioned during the Chicago meeting the "invalid_target" error code
that was added in -07 was intended to give the AS a standard way to reject
request with multiple audiences/resources that it doesn't understand or is
unwilling or unable to process based on policy or whatever criteria . It
was intended as a compromise, of sorts, to allow for the multiple
resources/audiences in the request but provide an easy out for the AS of
saying it can't be supported based on whatever implementation or security
or policy it has.
