[Disclaimer: I'm one of the co-authors on the TTZ draft, so I obviously
think the technology is useful.]

IMHO, having an ID that talks about those use cases would be an important
step forward.  

Right now the applicability draft talks about some (I'm sure there are
more) of the cases where the TTZ can be used..but I'm suggesting something
the other way around: a set of use cases that need to be solved.  Then we
can measure TTZ (or other solutions) against that set of requirements/use

My 1c.
