While the evolving permathread on "Centralization dangers of applying OIDC"
might feel a bit chaotic to some, it reminds me of the multi-year debate over
"decentralization" that this community participated in.

As most of us know, that eventually led to the realization of the many
dimensions of decentralization and creation of the excellent "DID Method
Rubric" by JoeA, RyanG, and DanielH (with support from a very large cast of
characters in this community).

It feels like we're in the early throes of a "Wallet Rubric". With that in
mind, I've mined the evolving permathread on "Centralization dangers of
applying OIDC" and have attempted to create a wallet protocol feature
comparison matrix:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Gp5V5lTO3pyQ94hS-UR_WTWg0DkBMv0ubXYaKjIPqnU/edit#gid=0

It's a first cut, clearly wrong in many ways, and a work in progress...
everyone has Edit rights to the document (please don't abuse that privilege).

There are two sheets to the document, the first covers "Wallet Invocation" and
the second covers "Presentation Exchange". If you feel a feature is missing,
please add it (and ideally, an explanation in the Notes section if it's not
clear what the feature does -- or the nuances).

I'll keep updating the sheet as the conversation continues.
