Henry,

You know that comment above just isn't right. You're making an excuse 
for specificity that's tainting the job at hand, potentially. Of course, 
if WebID == HTTP scheme based Agent URIs, solely then fine, let's be 
very clear and upfront about it from the onset.

The path to NetID is a no-brainer for me if we want to play around with 
labels, syntax, and semantics :-)

Why do you think we're spending time on all of these protocols?
