Apologize again that I didn't have a phone at hand and couldn't participate
in the discussion

If as the minutes points out identity=aggregated profile, it is then no
different from "representations of a person" , or which is even a better
description. from the definition in the framework[1], it looks like there
is  a one-to-one mapping (single,unique identity for a social web user), but
is it the case? if the identity is an aggregated profiles + selected +
verified, then this seems to be much more complicated, for example I have
three profiles (e.g. facebook, twitter, youtube) with different information,
what will be this unique identity then?
