Not really imho. It's an extensible negotiable framework for message
based authentication with no dependencies on how such authentication is
implemented besides it being message based to fit in the message
structure of HTTP.

But it might need to be complemented with a framework for message
integrity however. Digest touches this, but not sure having message
integrity at the authentication level is right..
