Hi,


   I've been looking at a third solution that I've included in the UI 
Flows version 0.08 I've just completed.
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/34057557/Moonshot%20User%20Flows%200.08.pdf

  I thought I would run this by you for discussion.

The idea is that you have 3 states for associations.  Associated, not 
associated and disabled association (this indicates that the service is 
in the saved services list but the user is still asked for an ID Card 
when trying to authenticate against this service).  The service appears 
disabled in the saved list so nothing disappears as would be the case if 
we were out right removing the association.
I've also added a button to the UI so now the user has the option of 
clicking on "Send" and "Send and Save"

The idea is this.  If the user wants to not associate the service to the 
ID Card she presses Send.  No association is made.

If the user wants to create an association she presses "Send and Save".  
The association is made.  If everything goes well and we know everything 
is well the association is left untouched.  If something goes wrong or 
we don't know that everything is alright the association is disabled.  
The user can see this in the saved services list.

If everything was alright at some point but this is no longer the case 
then the association is disabled as well.  The association is enabled 
again when the user is able to connect to the service successfully.   
There is a possibility that we might be able to enable the service 
association manually as well from the saved services list.

The advantage of this approach is that we aren't removing something the 
user has saved to a list.  If we are telling the user that something is 
being saved somewhere she needs to see that it has been saved but 
something has gone wrong.  The extra button removes the need for a 
dialog which would make resending the ID card easy in the case of an error.
