Subject: RE: [security-services] Proposed erratum resolutions

Got it, actually your section number was correct and should have tipped me to the problem.
I agree that AllowCreate is problematic, it's a kind of "federation policy" (when to create identifiers? Lifetime of ids? Will they be rolled over every week?) that is otherwise absent from the specification.

Oops. I screwed up this text. I meant transient, not persistent. Sorry for
any confusion.

Well, as a separate consideration, it's worth noting that if you don't think
AllowCreate even matters for persistent (it certainly means nothing if you
don't create on the fly), it's hard to see where it ever would.
