You said something similar to Gerv when he was trying to understand your
token-stealing attack.  Trust me, we are not deliberately trying to be
obstinate to miss your point.  We're familiar with your work.  We know
you've found lots of neat bugs in browsers and web sites, so your input
is valuable in this discussion.  But it needs to be structured in a way
that can be objectively processed.

Your point has become muddled, unfortunately.  It started as an argument
against using headers to deliver the policy.  To me, that seems to be an
orthogonal issue to the policy syntax.  Are you saying "I don't
understand how to use this syntax to express a policy" or "I don't
understand how to send HTTP headers"?

Nobody here wants to ignore you.  You're reading too much into the
comments if that is the impression you are getting.  I encourage you to
stay engaged in this discussion, avoiding statements of pure opinion as
much as possible.

Best,
Brandon
