Discussion notes:


Phil's blog post is good notes here:

there is a tension between discovering service endpoints for a domain, then applying that for a present user, and looking up information about other users, and getting access to endpoints to connect to them.

WebFinger is focused on user-specific lookup; need to optimize the domain-general lookup too.
