Since governments have equally different ideas* concerning identity as people subscribed to this list seem to have, that would be a mighty huge letter :-)

I believe creating a WG without having a fairly well-defined platform for an extremely fuzzy topic like "identity" is complete nonsense.

FWIW, I recently got (off-list) a VC platform paper from one the list subscribers which actually appeared quite workable.


* France is a wonderful example.  They claim that SSNs are against citizen liberties but anyway recently introduced a nation-wide biometric database although 9 out of 10 organizations were against it.
