Summary: This document appears to be ready for publicaiton as a Proposed 


This reviewer would suggest that the General AD check with parties who 

can confirm the two notes below.

Note that the reviewer did not review RFC 6749, 

draft-ietf-oauth-assertions, or draft-ietf-oauth-json-web-token, but 

simply takes as given that the work here is consistent with that work.

Similarly, the reviewer assumes that the subtleties of 

internationalization of issuers (and any other fields that must be 

compared).  It is not obvious whether pointing to the RFC 3986 is 

sufficient, but it is not obviously insufficient.

Major issues: N/A

Minor issues:

    I presume it is clear from the underlying documents whether the 

periods at the ends of intermediate lines in the examples are supposed 

to be there.

Nits/editorial comments: N/A
