Perhaps if it's stated that the web-identity charter is complementary, 
rather than competing.

To me at least, standardization of WebID is clearly far out of charter 
for the web-identity wg, and always will be. However as they are 
complimentary, I'm sure that WebID will benefit exponentially from any 
APIs produced by the web-identity group (I'm already most looking 
forward to seeing and using what is produced), and similarly I doubt 
they'd be possible to define properly without thoroughly considering the 
needs of both WebID and the Read-Write Web.

Thus, just what is the issue? I really can't see one.

Best,

Nathan
