My major concern will have been addressed as soon as we can get
consensus on a clear, unambiguous and complete 'output', in section 7.2.
If the consumer agent gets the right information, it's up to that agent
to use it for what it wants to do with it (reputation, make phishing
visible etc. etc.). So for the moment I would like to try to focus on
the 'Output' discussion, not on the validation of Input.
