re: bare minimum, im a big believer in Kingley's anthem,

"Put the data out there and let the Web do the REST"

Thinking outside the silo, in a user centric identity world, you dont
really need permission to do anything.

Facebook is an open platform, WebID is an open platform, both claim
the users own their own data.

Just pull that into the Web ecosystem and let them interoperate in a
linked data way.
