I believe the latest definition of claim in the architecture document

http://w3c.github.io/webpayments-ig/VCTF/architecture/

is fundamentally wrong. It says

Claim
    A statement made by an entity about a subject. For example: "Jane is
a doctor."

The example is not one claim, but two claims. It claims that the subject
is a doctor and that the subject is called Jane. We should rewrite this
to say

Claim
    A statement made by an entity about a holder. For example: "The
holder is a doctor."
