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 , only a question of convenience of access to the TAL
as sought by the community.

 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.
