Could you describe a scenario where the service provider is not on HTTP? How would it send a response I the first place? Are you talking about offline scenarios?

Thanks,
JC

A related design decision: What about service providers that aren't at visible via HTTP?  I don't think we have consensus on this yet.

Some possible status ambiguities for service providers.  All are solvable with trivial engineering.

-If a service provider is using its own domain:
         -Is the entity a first party, third party, or service provider?
         -Which party is it providing outsourcing services to?  (Might be multiple parties in different roles.)
-If a service provider is using a different party's domain (e.g. a CNAMEd analytics service):
         -Who is the service provider?
