I took an action at our recent call [1] to write a proposal regarding management of network identifiers
(defined in the Basic Card spec [2]). Here is the first draft of the proposal:

  Proposal to Manage Card Network Identifiers Separate from Basic Card Spec

Note: the initial list of identifiers comes from our 21 April 2016 draft [3], minus the ones that we
now manage through the supportedTypes values. In discussion about the proposal, I think we
should mostly focus on the question of whether we are ok to publish a separate list that we
change through WG decision. We should also discuss the list of identifiers, but in my mind
that is not the priority question around this proposal.

Comments welcome,
