 I think we should be careful about associated with the term webid any idp/rp interaction, and any assertion format - even one often used. Why? becuase there is zero about it in the spec. If, broadly, its not in the spec of the WG, its not part of the mission. Either codify it and add it to yet-another-assertion-protocol list, or lets not talk about it (here). As it stands, webid is about a brower-website relation. Its not about a browser-idp-website relation.> Date: Tue, 2 Aug 2011 11:33:36 +0200
