I am opposed to this, since:

  • This feels like abusing the concept of a "DID method" for something that should be done another way.
  • This would not satisfy the requirements of a DID method, e.g. the operations Create/Read/Update/Deactivate would be meaningless.
  • Retrieving properties/metadata from a DID resolver (I assume that is meant by "DID Server" in the PR title) should be done in other ways, e.g. by additional function calls or APIs that are separate from DID resolution itself.

Note several similar discussions: w3c-ccg/did-resolution#26, w3c-ccg/did-spec#171, w3c-ccg/did-spec#171 (comment), w3c-ccg/did-spec#167 (comment)
