"simple" is clearly subjective.

Do you mean: go beyond the current demo which is focused (right now) on 
you presenting your WebID en route to resource access?

Okay, but I do want feedback from a few more members. Right now I just 
have you, Melvin, and Juergen .

My next step will be to expose the ACL resource so that seed members can 
expand access. After that, I show more complex rules and a UI for said 
rules. This is where the foaf:knows relationship comes into play as a 
basic example. The same UI will also allow you to make more 
sophisticated rules using SPARQL ASK.
