Just a quick note on the DID Auth topic, I submitted a RWoT#6 topic
paper that summarizes the many different ideas, data formats, flows,
etc. I've seen in relation to "DID Auth".

https://github.com/WebOfTrustInfo/rebooting-the-web-of-trust-spring2018/blob/master/topics-and-advance-readings/DID%20Auth:%20Scope,%20Formats,%20and%20Protocols.md

(Sorry for doing this so late, maybe it can serve as an outline for
discussions next week).
