I would prefer not to go into a very complicated research here, mainly
 because many things are changing underneath our feet in this area 
(like the FIDO spec that @shepazu referred to). Ie, at this moment, we
 should have a single property whose range we do not define (maybe we 
will in later releases). Ie, I agree with @BigBlueHat's opinion:

>So, the only thing I'm really trying to solve is have a unique 
identifier for a creator that is not actionable beyond being a thing 
to filter by later--which is (afaik) precisely the use case described 
in FOAF's mbox_sha1sum (however geeky that key name may be...).

Naming is indeed hard, though... In many respect ``fingerprint`` would
 be descriptive but people might take it in the literal sense which is
 not what we want. But maybe that is still the closest...
