Is this a proposal to use the method distinguishing abstract from concrete, and service from protocol?

If so, I'm all in favor.

If webid is a service, ldap http and oid are 3 equally valid protocols - as are schemes only recognized by platform.

If https is a service port, then browser, socket and proxy are 3 protocol integrations. 

If a profile is an abstract type, signed xrd, foaf files, foafagent sources are each concrete types.

Ideally, in the assurance space for webid folks will make concrete claims using Internet security architecture. This may take the logic of provenance and then state what is true and what measures secure that truth.
