 "Principal" not "principle" . This is useful term because it allows a wider range of identifiers than those that refer to the subject. It also identifies a string and not the referent of the string. The Subject is the thing referred to. So even though
"kidehen@openlinksw.com" and "http://kingsley.idehen.net/dataspace/person/kidehen#this" are two of Kingsley's principals they are not the same principals. As string identity they are unequal.

Is accnt:openlinksw.com also an OpenID principal now?
