Henry,

Is a WebID verifier supposed to be a Linked Data consumer ?
Is a WebID verifier supposed to be an RDF consumer?

Please understand that RDF != Linked Data. It's just one of the options 
for creating and publishing Linked Data.

In addition:

Is a WebID verifier supposed to be an HTTP client?
Is a WebID verifier supposed to be able to leverage HTTP content 
negotiation?

Right now, WebID verifiers are very inconsistent re. the above, thus I 
encourage we bring clarity to this very important manner.

Remember, if we are going to tout WebID as leveraging Web Architecture, 
we have to actually comply with said architecture.
