The issue relates to Section 4.3: Generic DID Parameter Names, and Section 4.4: Method-Specific DID Parameter Names. Please start by reading the issue description at w3c-ccg/did-spec#200. Also the two comments listed there.

I propose to start the discussion by focusing on these two questions:

  1. Should we assume that generic DID parameter names are distinguished by having no prefix?
  2. If so, what prefix should we use to distinguish method-specific parameter names?

The answers currently reflected in sections 4.3 and 4.4 are:

  1. Yes, generic DID parameter names have no prefix.
  2. The prefix for method-specific parameter names is the fully qualified DID method name. (This also explains why colons are the separator in method-specific parameter names.)

Are there other proposals?

Related to this is #67 (comment) - making it syntactically evident which fields in a DID are about the DID and which are application data.
