Hi all,

Is there any intention for Webfinger to support the creation/update of 
resource descriptors? For example, an internal system wants to create 
the JRD related to a newly created user registration, or to update a JRD 
for bert@example.com to add some new link relations. Maybe by adding 
POST/PATCH support against the Webfinger resource....

Many thanks!
Kevin
