Hi Manu,

Rendering is very important to us in supply chain use cases and we'd be
interested to see a standard methodology emerge.

We've been using the decentralised rendering tools from
Singapore Government - and applying the tools to W3C VCs


Unfortunately the documentation is written more from the perspective of
open source software docs rather than open standard specifications - which
is something that would need to be addressed if it is to be considered as a
contribution to any standards work.

Keen to see a standard way to do this so we'd be happy to contribute if
it's useful.

Kind regards.
