Re: [higgins-dev] new IdASRegistry

Hmm I don't know enough about the use cases to have an opinion about this. Has anyone ever used different context factories for the same context?

The current proposal does support associating a context with a single or multiple context factories (via the context type), but as you say it does not really "remember" which one was used. However, due to the "priority" attributes in XRDS, one can predict which one the registry will choose.

When we first discussed the registry, a few F2F's ago, there was a
notion that the registry would hold a binding of a context and a
particular context factory.  Different factories might allow different
operations/views of a given context, so it's important for a user to
keep using the same factory in order to get a consistent experience.

I don't see anything in the current proposal that supports this.  Do we
still believe that it's needed?  Do we believe that different factories
will indeed have different behaviors?  (Even if this behavior is subtle,
such as different ways of updating attributes, it might be confusing if
the user sees differences.)
