Otherwise one could have dynamic dns. I Again the simple solution is to have a pretty stable host. Most people have a home, and that is a good place to put one. It is protected by very strong laws.

It's also why Cable companies and Telcos are potential vectors of 
WebIDs. Funnily enough, during a dinner conversation at WWW2007 (Banff) 
as we planned the inaugural Linked Data meetup, I was posed the 
following question (by Chris Bizer): how will Linked Data go viral? My 
answer: by getting major infrastructure providers on board via a Linked 
Data solution that has a really compelling value proposition.

Imagine if Cable and Telco players delivered the virtues of WebID to 
customers via upgrades of their current solutions with "improved 
privacy" control as the carrot and "no privacy" control as the stick :-)

Privacy == controlled vulnerability. Basically vulnerability calibrated 
by you.
