Andrei,

That's sums up what I said to you about not wanting any IdP 
restrictions. WebID is about flexibility that comes from being 
inherently open and distributed. Nobody is in a position to subjectively 
assert trust. The issue of trust is derived from the logic of the system 
itself.

In the WebID world its about the WebID, the WebID, and the WebID. That's 
it :-)
