From an implementation point of view including the trust model into the
request/response may be a little easier (at least in my design) but not
enough to influence the definition of the specification.

However adding querying for trust models has the potential of getting very
complicated (both in its definition, implementation and in user
interaction). So i tend to favor the URL and the "let's see the web page"
(à la CPS) [1] approach.

Isn't the TransactionID element already in place just for that ?
AFAIK the TransactionID should works for single, or many, URLs.


As for question 2 [2], URLs as "trust selectors" are fine with me.
