I though of a quite different approach : we could define a new ontology
(more or less like the ACL one), but defining which website (or something
more general) has access to which property of the FOAF Agent.

It may require  the server serving the FOAF file to do a SPARQL query (or
something similar) instead of a "basic" server serving a static file.

I think I can write up a prototype before the middle of next week.

Tell me if it sounds stupid or useless.
