[KI-LC] Trust Framework Meta Model (TFMM) WG charter for LC review and approval

I'd like to make sure I understand the difference between a Trust 
Framework and an Identity Assurance Framework.  My understanding is that 
an Identity Assurance Framework is concerned strictly with providing 
assurance about the identity of an individual (and perhaps other 
entities as well), whereas a Trust Framework is concerned with providing 
assurance of more generalized claims.  So in practical terms, the 
Service Assessment Criteria for an IAF is strictly limited to identity 
proofing of individuals (or other entities), whereas the corresponding 
criteria for a TF is concerned with verification of other non-identifier 
attributes that define a claim.  Other than that, they are basically the 

Is that correct?  Or are there other differences?
