Oops. Typo in previous message fixed

How about changing the first sentence of the problem statement

There is currently no widely used self-sovereign and privacy-enhancing
standard for expressing and transacting verifiable claims (aka:
credentials, attestations) via the Web.

to

There is currently no application independent self-sovereign and
privacy-enhancing standard for expressing and transacting verifiable
claims (aka: credentials, attestations) via the Web.


This gets rid of the 'no widely used' issue that cannot be solved by the
time the working group finishes, whilst ensuring that the we want to
devise a solution that is not restricted to one sector or application

regards
