Your comment on 6.1.1 Identity Signal:

Working Group Resolution (LC-2063):
This terminology has been removed with a clarification. It now reads:

If the identity signal is available, it MUST be part of primary user
interface when any identity sources that are from unauthenticated or
untrusted sources are (also) part of the primary user interface. These
sources include URLs.
