Over the past few weeks, the working group debated the issues around
the introduction of signatures and the structure of the specification.
The working group seems to endorse the proposal to split the current
specification into two parts: one including section 5 (bearer token)
and the other including the rest (how to obtain a token), with an
additional specification covering signature use cases.

This serves as a call for consensus on the proposed editorial work.
Before we proceed with the changes, the chairs would like to ask if
anyone has any concerns or objections against this proposal.

In addition, the chairs are seeking a volunteer to take over the
bearer token specification (section 5) as editor.

Please submit your comments by Wednesday, October 20th.
