In the following paragraph:

Declaring Support and Parameters for BrowserID

To declare support for BrowserID, a domain MUST publish either a BrowserID support document OR a BrowserID
delegated-support document at a specific URI relative to the domain's SSL URI. The relative reference URI for this
document is /.well-known/browserid, as per RFC5785. The domain MAY choose to reference this BrowserID support
document from a host-meta file (as per RFC5785)."

The string 'host-meta file' is nowhere in RFC5785.

Clarifying precisely what you mean would be helpful.

Web Host Metadata RFC6415 defines the "host-meta file"

OK - I guess the parenthetical RFC reference should be updated to 6415 then.

I'm dedicating much of Thursday to hacking on id-specs. This should get cleared up then or shortly thereafter.
