One of the issues we faced in writing this paper is the 5-page maximum. As
it stands, the document (if printed) is five-and-a-half pages right now.
Therefore, we have no room to expand.

The singular purpose of this paper is to pique the interest of the
committee that will choose the speakers. If we succeeded in doing that,
then we hope that we will be offered an opportunity to present a 20-minute
talk at the workshop. Assuming the WebID IG is offered such an
opportunity, we will cover certain details that, out of necessity, we had
to gloss over or simply leave out.

So, when analyzing the paper, the question should be, Does the position
paper as it is currently written, present sufficient enticements to be
offered a presentation slot?

Of course, we do need to make sure that we appropriately convey the
advantages and power of WebID in our oral presentation. So any and all
input is useful and appreciated!

BTW Henry, last night I uploaded a corrected graphic for the certificate
picker screen. The most recent copy of our position paper on your site
does not have that change.
