    OTTO WG,
    Just a reminder that there is no OTTO meeting again this week. I'm 
    teaching a training class this week.
    I ruffled some feathers on the refeds mailing list, which I think will 
    generate some interesting feedback. We have a meeting scheduled for next 
    Thu at 10 CT to get more feedback.
    The concern on the refeds list is that our solution is too complex. 
    Personally I think they are distracted by the API endpoints (which will 
    be of interest primarily to implementers of the RA) and not appreciating 
    the browse/query capabilities, or the advantages of the linked data 
    Also, I think part of the pushback is that we've done a better job 
    describing the API's then the data model.

    Here is a response from Scott Cantor for example:

    That model is much more complex to implement and that's why it wasn't 
    chosen 15 years ago to begin with. You don't get flexibility for free, 
    and we already see essentially no uptake of any automated provisioning, 
    trust management, or revocation in the general software ecosystem. I 
    don't believe that making things more complex will improve that picture.
