I think it's fine for a straw poll, for those that are interested.  I dont
see any of the mailing list protocols being violated, imho.

Personally I'm a +0 and will get behind the consensus view whatever the
terms are called.  I liked it when it was tied FOAF+SSL, I liked it when it
was tied to a public key, and I like it even better with the current split
between auth and identity.

All other things being equal, I lean towards the axiom of tolerance to
allow as much as possible.
