My only ambition has been describing how you could "webify" an existing payment system,
*without* changing data ownership, relationships, business-, trust-, or privacy-models.

Since the main problem with identity information is not the information itself but
how it will be used after being submitted, it seems like a safe(r) bet minimizing
exposure of such data.  This is a corner-stone of my write-up.  Another example is
FIDO which (at least on paper...) is the opposite to Linked Data since each site
is supposed to be an identity silo.  In practice FIDO doesn't work as Google claims
but that's altogether different discussion :-)
