That's more or less my feeling. I'm willing to consider proposing
something if it turns out that the OAuth community decides not to provide
a trust management mechanism, but I'm not inclined to preempt it.

And yes, I certainly have no intention of using one. I already have an XML
solution and I don't need a JSON one. I will need a profile for extending
the XML solution, but that's trivial.
