Do not include an incorrect informative note! The i= value is NOT
part of ADSP evaluation and therefore plays NO role with respect to
A signer is free to assert whatever they wish with the i= value that
is within the signing domain. The only limitation is the Author
Domain and the Signing Domain must be the same. Do NOT refer to this
requirement as having anything to do with the i= value.
