PROBLEM STATEMENT

   - There is no interoperable standard capable of expressing and
   transmitting rich verifiable claims that cuts across industries (e.g.,
   finance, retail, education, and healthcare). This leads to
   industry-specific solutions that are costly, inefficient, proprietary, and
   inhibit users' ability to manage their digital identities in a cohesive way.


   - There is no portable and interoperable standard capable of expressing
   and transmitting rich verifiable claims that cuts across industries (e.g.,
   government, law, finance, retail, education, and healthcare). This leads to
   industry-specific solutions that are costly, inefficient, proprietary, and
   inhibit users' ability to manage their digital identities in a cohesive way.

ALSO: I do not see anything in the problem statement suggesting users
should be able to assert claims. and/or the concept of 'e-contracts'.

The problem is that without this reference the purpose of why someone
presents a claim may not be limited for the specified purpose requiring the
credential in the first instance.

AND

the concept of a package of claims, as to enable the subject to make a
declaration of their age being over 18, without declaring the complete
details of their drivers license for the purpose of accessing a website.


RE: 5.2 Other W3C Groups

I do not see where LDP or RWW or related works are listed here.  Nor do i
see ODRL: https://www.w3.org/ns/odrl/2/ODRL21 as was discussed in 2014:
