Your prototype would be with only one SAN in the certificate, Peter Williams would be with 2 SANs in the certificate. But we get the gist right? If we start off with the X509 certificate with n Subject Alternative NAmes, then the mirrored claims idea is that each SAN's :sense documents, i.e.. the WebID profile for that WebID, publish the relation to the public key and the owl:sameAs relations to the other SANs. IT is not really a full mirror, as there are a lot of things in the X509 certificate that are not published in the other formats.

It isn't a full mirror, it could be a full mirror. WebID is but one 
system. The problem space isn't new. WebID is a contemporary approach to 
the problem space. That's basically the essence of Peter's narrative. 
WebID is another innovation in an old problem space.

The Wiki works re. terminology management.
