But, you can't push this as an alternative to Email, just yet. Let's fix 
Email with WebID as it is still the ultimate WebID vector. At this 
point, we've been able to verify the following re. WebID bootstrap:

WebID+S/MIME == killer.

WebID+IMAP4 == killer.

WebID+WebDAV == killer.

WebID+CalDAV == killer.

WebID+CardDAV == killer.

WebID+OpenID == killer.
