Here is a quick dump of items that should go to a Wiki doc for simple 
but powerful WebID usecases re., RWW:

1. email spam reduction (possibly total elimination) -- signed emails 
using x.509 certs. with WebID watermarks and S/MIME (we've already 
implemented this successfully)

2. resource access control lists -- scoped to a person, group, or 
complex rules (only limited by imagination due to power of SPARQL ASK 
e.g., my recent posts showcasing SPARQL service control via social 

3. delegation -- as per Henry's recent post about CORs (which is a big 
deal) ditto showcasing how a single relation basically delivers the same 
thing as OAuth, but with better AWWW DNA

4. others ..

Then we should also collate bootstrap patterns e.g.,

1. email - encourage everyone to send signed emails also aids WebID 
discovery e.g., if I want to add you to an ACL I can just look at the 
last signed email you sent me (or a mailing list

2. notification services e.g., semantic pingbacks -- every time you add 
someone to an ACL or make a social claim about them a ping out should 
occur (in some cases this should trigger a signed email as a compliment) .
