Good point. That is why currently in the spec (latest editor's draft  here 
http://bblfish.net/tmp/2011/12/06/index-respec.html  )

the image has an rdfs:seeAlso to a protected resource. 

But I don't think that was discussed, and though it is not wrong, it is  probably too general a relation.
( Also we don't have it in the rdf serialisations )

So I think you raise a good point. 

The WebID Profile document should not be automatically protected or otherwise we have the potential of deadlocks
occurring.

Perhaps this should also be specified.

But here I think we need more discussion.

PS. perhaps that is something the read-write-web group is interested in helping us out with?
