That's a very valid point, mapping to well defined protocols and 
encouraging (or expecting) their use is one thing, but precluding all 
schemes bar one really isn't a wise move, even just for the sake of 
future proofing the thing!

Fully agree w/ the approach you outline above kinglsey, if you don't 
understand the scheme you simply don't know if it's a webid, nothing 
more, nothing less.

Best,

Nathan
