Further, could someone elaborate on these requirements?  For example,
are there any existing products which are exemplary of the annotation
or meta-data we'd standardize through this working group?

For example, if I had to speculate, I think there are QoS issues that
could be specified using an annotation, such as

Site supports personalization
Site supports mutual auth
Site supports ZKPP derived session key
Site lexical password format requirements
Proof of mutual auth
How and where to show personalization proof

Is this the intended direction?
