Hi Manu,

I think this is a great doc. Two questions:

Why is it necessary to be explicit about the types of claims the group is
looking at?
The concept of "claims" with regard to the definition of identities is well
known, could the opening paragraph be reworded to simply say:

The mission of the Credentials Working Group is to standardize a mechanism
for exchanging provably-authentic claims about an entity via the Web.

Second, should the charter not reference some existing technologies in this
space and indicate why these are not considered sufficient to achieve the
mission of the group or is this premature in the charter?
