Hi everybody,

I agree with the idea of 7725bis.

Probably some Security considerations are needed (eg.  resolving links
to blocking-authorities may disclose the client data,  ...)

My 2ยข,
R.

We're also inclined to think that if there's support, the best path forward would be to do a (relatively small) 7725bis; besides the issues that draft-sahib attempts to address, there's been some discussion of adjusting wording to make it clear that the status code is also useable when a request is refused for legal reasons in absence of an actual legal demand -- e.g., when the server wishes to serve the response, but believes that some legal obligation prevents them from doing so.
