So overall, you are in favor in deprecating RFC 5617?
My position is now is to agree with you IFF the modus operandi is to
allow for resigners with no mandate or recommendation to use RFC 5617.
If this is the recommendation, then we need to get rid of it or fine
tune the specification to spell out the issues with receivers who
begin to support it.
