Fabien,

Thank you for writing this up! This is really interesting to read through, and it’s especially interesting to see that it doesn’t seem to be that much of a lift on top of the base protocol. 

Now that you’ve built it, do you think there’s much of an impediment for a developer to send the additional header alongside the token? I think we need to explore some other ways this could run, like using a structured header[1] for token presentation in this case.
