This uses Onename, built on Blockstack:

https://blockstack.org/docs/what-is-blockstack

I read through several of the pages under Naming, Identity, and FAQ.

I was amazed at how much both the architecture and the code examples 
look like the architecture and code examples for the VC group that 
have been posted recently. And it seems to be fully functional with 
50,000 users they say. And now Tim Berners-Lee.

Dave, Manu, others -- were you aware of all this already? If so, how 
does what's being done here differ from this?

Even if you weren't, --same question. After you look at it (which I 
think it would be wise to do) does the VC work differ from this? Can 
we all go home now?  :-)

And, closer to home, note their choice of using "Identity" without a 
modifier, and "Profile" as a collection of descriptors under that 
Identity.
