Well I'd be happy to make these things a lot more scientific and less subjective. All
we need to do is make it possible for resources that can be accessed by WebId to return
some error messages if things do not work out, and a success if they do. We could then 
automate testing of implementations. This was detailed here:

   http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/webid/wiki/Test_Suite

Not only would that make things less subjective it would make it easier for people to 
add their implementations to the system.
