That's fine.

But if it's key:value with no space, can you update the examples that show
spaces after the colons?

idserver --> consumer: (newline-terminated key:value pairs)

    * assoc_type: 'HMAC-SHA1'
    * assoc_handle: handle
    * issued: UTC date on server
    * replace_after: recommended replacement UTC date
    * expiry: expiry UTC date
    * mac_key: base64(secret(assoc_type, handle))

Perhaps make the keys bold if you want to set them apart.
