Hi, Manu:

I believe APA would like to help with this document, though we may be
severely challenged to provide comprehensive comments by 19 July
inasmuch as today is 18 July! :)

So, do you need whatever we can achieve by tomorrow? Or some short
statement by tomorrow and more details at some future date soon?

PS: For the record APA is very interested in seeing this technology
succeed. In fact we'd like to discuss ideas with the Verfiable
Credentials group during TPAC--but let's elaborate on that after
first establishing the requirements for tomorrow!
