Hi all,

I'm just wondering whether this group has had any discussion of - or any
implementations of - a decentralised VC renderer that works a bit like this
https://www.openattestation.com/docs/advanced/custom-renderer/

The idea here is that it helps with scalable implementations when a
verifier of a VC doesn't need to design and build it's own human consumable
view of the VC.  Instead it can say "I'll show it the way this rendering
template from the issuer says it should be viewed"...

It's very helpful in long supply chains where we can't assume every step
has a machine integration for a given credential type.  From my perspective
the key value is that it massively reduces implementation costs across a
linked data network where there are many issuers and verifiers of similar
things - because it reduces the human rendering development from an
N-squared problem to an N problem..

if it hasn't been a topic for the group then maybe it's something to add
somewhere on the long list of future to-do's?
