Validate token should not going be a high frequency call. The information is encapsulated inside the signed token for just that reason.

I would agree with the sentiment, however, that we are cramming a lot of info into the token. TOkens should be scoped much, much more finely: by default one service or endpoint, and one tenant.

The only thing that should require the full service catalog is the initial request of an unsigned token, and that should merely go back to the client.

going to be a huge performance impact . What is the use case for such a big payload when compared with v2?

If a service needs catalog , then the service can always ask for the catalog.
