RE: How much is it reasonable to generalize from the TruAge implementation?

Thanks for making this point, Rieks!

This reality is also, in part, my motivation for engaging in this discussion. My perspective, both directly and publicly regarding this is that I have no desire or ability to tell anyone what they should do, particularly another sovereign, while at the same time noting that what a particular sovereign does is not binding on others.

However, there is shared desire across jurisdictions to ensure that the 3 party identity model can work across implementations, even those with differing policy and implementation objectives.

I always considered that the best way to make that work in practice is to have a shared, open conversation about “yet-to-be-determined scheme”(s) a.k.a the criteria TBD to evaluate the qualities of a wallet,  so that the community can contribute to and align on things that everyone agrees is of value, and those agreements could become the foundation of the bridges that ensure cross-jurisdictional and global interoperability.
