Cheers for the quick response Leigh,

Good to see a link to the patterns book at the foot of the mail & have
this written up already, kudos.

all: As a side point, what if one had who they foaf:know in a document
pointed to by seeAlso, or the list of accounts etc - saying this purely
so it can be discussed and factored in to foaf(+ssl) aware software such
as foaf.me.

Best,

Nathan
