Description

2.1 Challenge and Response - "The user agent MUST choose to use one of the challenges with the strongest auth-scheme it understands..." What does "strongest" mean here? Should we have an index of auth scheme strength as a registry field? This may seem like nit-picking, but we place a MUST against it.
