That document didn't exist yet because we don't quite know everything
that should go in there. I have created a placeholder document, so that
the URL will at least resolve now.

We're a bit torn about using purl.org now that we've found out that it
doesn't support CORS headers correctly. That is, the 302 re-direct will
work just fine. However, attempting to access the document via CORS will
fail, which is not good for browser-based implementations of PaySwarm.
Hopefully, purl.org will support CORS soon, but if they don't - we'll
have to switch to somebody that does. I don't think we should link
directly to the payswarm.com site as we may decide to host the documents
at W3C eventually.
