Job - 
 
   As I noted, the Relying Party Agreement terms and conditions remain
   the same - we have simply eliminated the requirement for explicit 
   agreement to it thru entry of your email and click-to-accept.  We do 
   not expect there is any legal consequences for relying parties as result 
   of this change [1], only a question of convenience of access to the TAL
   as sought by the community.

Thanks!

[1]  The world of assenting to agreement terms is an interesting legal
      topic, and others may argue that changing from click-to-accept to 
      binding by usage is material; such is the nature of legal matters.
