Hi David and PING folks... even after spending some quality time with this
thread, I'm not sure I fully understand the sketch of what something like
personae could facilitate (and it's still hard for me to see how this is
orthogonal to efforts like DNT in TPWG). At some point, it would be good to
see not necessarily a spec, but something that is relatively self-contained
-- maybe I should just read the thread again! -- that describes the bounds
of the proposal.

And I could very well just be clueless...
