What more would it be that couldn't be considered "identity"? We're just
talking about claims about people/things in order to distinguish them
from other people/things. That's pretty generic already -- and it speaks
directly to "identity".

I don't think we want to expand the scope beyond that to encompass, for
example, payment or other security/authorization tokens because that
only causes the work to bleed into other areas where work is already
being done and is appropriately decoupled from identity.
