+1 great work

Claims and verifications of claims *should* happen at the data layer.  This
is in line with the web evolving from a web of documents towards a giant
global graph.  Mixing this with the protocol layer is not very clean
architecturally, but *may* offer some advantages in the software, by
resuing some of the built in features of the web, namely, HTTP.

I'd almost suggest that reusing JSON LD you can do this already, tho
perhaps more details to be sketched out on that one.
